Default Drambuie On Ice in Lake St. Clair

This may be old news as I have been away from the computer for a week. Last Tuesday while at Sun Up Marina on the Salt River, I hear something serious heading out to Anchor Bay. I looked up and it was Drambuie on Ice, followed by about a 40' Fountain with maybe 4-5 guys in it. Drambuie went out in the bay, and made what looked like a couple of hot passes, then came back in followed by the Fountain. I suspect it was a photo shoot, or working with the guys at Sterling Performance or maybe a potential sponsor deal. Does anyone know anything about this?

That's cool!!!! There's always something out there going seriously fast, making lots of noise. I wonder what was going on.

Drambuie was doing some testing , must have had Sterling doing some tuning.
From what I heard they launched from North Bay ? because the could use their hoist. The Fountain (I believe) was Art Summers.
Mike Fiore was also doing some testing with his 42' GTX that has twin 1200 Sterlings. I guess he ran 134 that day.

This is all second hand info so it could be wrong

Outer37,
I was told he was on his way to 1000 Is. , Sterling is only about 35 minutes from here. I also heard 145 ....man that is hauling ass !!
One question though ... if it goes that fast why not dethrone Reggie's fastest V-hull record ?

Drambuie was testing before going to the race last weekend.
Sterling was tuning the motors.(132mph) fresh water not bad.
The 42 Outerlimits ran 137mph What a ride
The Fountain was Art Sommers also DickCarlson from Ford marine
Divison had he's 42 Fountain out there.

Is Mike Fiore the guy that owns Boulevard Trumbull towing and lives right on the bay?
