They use a place right up the street from were I work for rigging called Pace Eng. Prob getting it ready to go to the Bahamas. I think the one you saw may belong to Zero Cavity.
BTW give me a call I lost your #

Its probably the Realized Gain boat, Chris G from Page racing is doing the final tuning on it, he works at deep lagoon, and is a rigger for Page racing as well as the throttles for that boat, which will wrap up the points in the bahama's.

Default Mine, I think. . .

Did it look anything like my avatar?

I hope so, as my right hand man (left hand, actually) Chris Gatturna (throttleman) was tuning it for the Bahamas!

I saw two Bat Boats on a trailer on Sunday evening. I stopped at Bennigans for dinner with my wife and she spotted them pulling in to the lot.

Earlier in the day I saw a bunch of people wearing "Hot Boat" Tshirts at the fuel dock at Fish Tale Marina. I was told that Hot Boat was running a poker run on Monday. I presumed that's why they were there.

Anyone attend the poker run, or hear about it ?

Guess the boats do not deceive human radar... Back to the batcave.

Anyone interested, call us for a test, and Hotboat, thanks for a cool run and test, hope to make it an annual event.
