We ran with #1 and #2 33 Evolutions, 3 37's and Boatfreak (Mike Case) in his 496 powered 28 Savage. We had a 50' Hustler hang with us for a bit til a steering issue made him drop the boat off at Haulover and his crew and him rode the rest of the way on the 28 Savage. On the way back we came out onto Biscayne Bay into big water. I'd say 8' to 10's with a few bigger ones thrown in. Coming in the inlet we launched off of one wave and went thru the next one and cracked the windscreen. A good time!! Thanks Brian.

2011 Active thunder Run on Mike Cases 37 Excess Active Thunder powered by 2 Youngs Performance N/A 572's pushing the AT to 90+mph. We had 6 37' Excess's and a center console Fountain on the run this year. We left Pompano and ripped it to Miami where we spent the night. Next morning we went to Gilberts for lunch. During lunch we got news of a storm coming in from the south so we beelined it thru the back bays of the Keys and out in to the Atlantic to Hawks Cay. Great time at Hawks Cay for a few days then a run back out into th Atlantic with 4-5's til we got back inside. We heard that the water was huge in the Atlantic off of Miami so some went inside and some went outside. We went inside since I've never seen it. Great sites and a great time. Thanks Mike!

2009 Key West Worlds. We tow my brothers 41 Apache "Indian Outlaw" 29 hours straight thru from Penna. to Key West. Huge water off of Mallory Square and with 1800+ HP to play with we had a blast! Thanks big brother Ike! Looking forward to Miami in February.
It was HUGE water that day. Tide was rolling out of Lighthouse Point really fast and the wind was blowing in. We drove up the face of that 2nd monster like it was the Perfect Storm. The wave literally broke over the bow of the boat. It was awesome!!

Would have loved to see the faces on the people from the dive boat we passed as that happened!

And the best comment of the trip "Do you want to drive?"
