Default Boats that didn't run LOTO Shootout -700's- Dragon Statement- Skater V

Saw there was a Merc 700 class this year in another thread designated by (A) for power.

Was hoping the Statement and Dragons would have run. Not positive the baby blue dragon had 700's, but thought I saw that somewhere. Undercover has 700's though; did Randy get it dialed in yet?

Any speed # on the Saddle up Statement?

Was also hoping the 488 Skater/1500's would run; oh well.

Just some curiosity/observation of the Shootout.

We were gonna run, but didn't get the right props until Saturday morning... Tried to test, but not enough time.

Thanks for the complements on the boat!

Tom, the 48SLV is amazing, and I love the colors. Tom, I was actually suprised that more Skaters and MTIs passed and did not run... I was watching it live, and it seemed like the majority of the Skaters/MTIs just came for the party and show.. I expected to see more of them run, it was my first time watching it live on cam....

Your boat was SICK man. I met you twice in about 5 minutes at Dog Days, but I'm sure you shook a lot of hands that day, lol.

It was nice meeting you finally, & again the boat was incredible.

That might be the most beautiful boat i have ever seen.

That said i hope for the owner and family all is ok and well. I just went through my own family tragety and hate to see others go through it too.

Keep up the amazing boats and god bless the family at this time of need.
