Is that an APBA, or SBI record?

First and foremost, Doc Jansen is one of the most professional people I have ever met. Brian F. is one of the most talented and intelligent racer I have had the privledge to associate with. Outerlimits has put out a fine technologically advanced boat. However, with this record being certified by APBA, how can it stand with the APBA rulebook specifically stating:the boat must weigh 5250 with a sealed Mercury 525 EFI with no modified ECU. (Here is the link to APBA rules:http://www.apba.org/sites/all/files/...Offshore_0.pdf and it starts on Page 70) Were other teams invited to this event?

I do not agree with the rules in the APBA rulebook hence the reason for me taking my SVL and racing in a bracket(not where I want to be, I want to be in spec), It has been proven time and time again Mercury seals are plentiful and easily obtainable and without any kind of technical verification(tech verification is not offered at this time), seals are a joke. I refuse to pay $12,000 to Mercury for $200.00 worth of seals. Steve Miklos' record in no shape or form could have been broken as Steve was in full compliance to the rules and this speed is nothing more than a "Shootout" speed and if APBA has any kind of merit, Steve's record should stand until all of the tech rules are followed and verified. Time and time again offshore makes improvement by 2 steps, but then we wonder why we are where we are cause for every 2 steps forward, we take 10 steps backwards....

The above being said, congrats to the Snowy Mountain team for obtaining the speeds that were recorded. OL once again puts out a fine product, now go out and follow the rules in the APBA rulebook and see what speeds can truly be obtained

Congrats to all involved on yet another vee record for the OL camp, that 29 (30?) is a beautiful boat and crazy fast with only a single 525 (assuming that's what it is)!

The old Fountain svl went 105 mph at the loto shootout a couple years ago. It had one of those blue looking. 525s. So just a 100 is kinda slow
