This should be a good one!

Big Block Chevy for me and I bypass the F1 section and go right to the classifieds!

I don't spend $$ on PB or read it anymore, sorry, can't help you on this Q, but I do like both types of motors, I have owned both, and they each have their own merits. BUT I'm afraid it's only a matter of time before 2-stroke O/Bs are made illegal by the EPA. 4-stroke O/Bs will be the wave of the future, hell, Honda and Yamaha are already building 225 and 200 HP 4-stroke O/Bs!
TGIF,

If you mean, all those "other" type of boat articles towars the back of the mag, then YES...I look at the pretty pics and skip over it.

Yes Nick that is what we were talking about in another thread. That PB doesn't cover SBI but waste (IMHO) 5 pages on Formula 1 P.R.O.P Series. And when I asked Brett Becker @ PB mag about this he seemed to think there is a big following in Formula 1. I guess I am not the only one that flips through these pages to get to the classifieds. I think maybe the question should be which one makes better music to your ears: outboreds or big block chevys. So make sure you put me down for Big Block Chevy (after all I AM a GM/Harley fan) And I would rather see more offshore coverage than little outbored race boats. I do read about the Unlimited Hyrdoplanes but to go from there and then to Formula 1 Glad I'm not the only one that thinks this way.

I think that there is a huge following, but I would tend to agree that it is out of Powerboat's Scope. I would much rather see those pages devoted to Offshore Racing of any kind, or maybe even poker run coverage.

You mean there's another F1 beside offshore, LOL!

Yep, guilty... skip past Formula 1, skip all outboard tech stuff. Go straight to the Donzi Girl.

Have you seen the Cigarette Girl on the back cover? Looks like the new owners are ratcheting up the marketing a bit. She's getting a Cigarette tatoo.

I like it, but it seems a little like the Donzi adds with the Red Head.

Oh, and nothing sounds like a big block when they first fire.
