The boat Stevo13 is referring to is Mike Avila's 21-foot Wellscraft (designed by ski racer Martie Wells), "Warpaint". The boat has been a top runner in water ski racing for several years. Powered by a pair of staggered big block supercharged Chevy engines spinning a pair of IMCO stern drives. The boat will run an honest 125 to 130 mph. Routinely pulls skiers in the Men's Open Class in excess of 110 mph. Mike was a world champion water ski racer himself until a serious accident left him with a badly injured arm. Today, he drives the boat mostly with the use of only one arm and a foot throttle.
