Deans pics were in the turns, we run from bridge to bridge. It's been really hard to get still shots of the boat it comes and goes so fast from the chase boat. This picture is at about 170+.

Are you going to make it to LOTO Stinson?

Steve1,
Unfortunately, the cat has only 2 seats!
But, the C-55 has a seat that I can hopefully ride in, one of these days! Once again, this work crap gets in the way of all the FUN things I want to do!
Good luck to Callan Marine and Marine Performance in LOTO! I strongly suggest to everyone who is going to LOTO for the Shootout, to check out the Callan boats, they are VERY UNIQUE boats! The engineering and rigging that has gone into these boats are truly State of the Art!

OMG, 192.8mph! "Great moment" is an understatement.
jc, I think you've won by the intimidation factor alone.
I've driven at over 100mph many times, but I cant even imagine 190+.
It looks like you're a well prepared, profesional organization, so my only advice, DRIVE SAFE!
Looking forward to seeing you and your boats at LOTO. See you all at Shooters.

Boat looks remarkably stable and on the water for 170. Does it go through any transitions through the speed spectrum?

I would like to say that I am going to be at LOTO but I can't honestly say at this point in time. Hope so but with this move and everything else going on time isn't a commodity I have a whole lot of.

Sean

Sean,
I hope you get to go to LOTO! But if you don't, I won't feel like such a "Slug", (JC term) for NOT finding the time to make the trip to LOTO! There, now I feel better!

Default Dean, you S L U G ...

Hey MD-

C'mon, live a little. Hop that plane next weekend and go to LOTO. We need the presence of your mass up there....gotta keep those MP boys out of trouble, you know the way they get.

The computer controlled AutoStart for the C55 turbines worked pretty slick yesterday. Just need to get another piece so that we can use the EGT sensor for "cool" starts. Even Mr. "I don't like computers" JP started both turbines up with it.

Anyway, will take some pictures and video for you since you are going to be a SLUG...
