timucin,

You see no one wants to admit what they really spent for fear of retribution from their wives. Whats does a decent Porche cost these days?

If someone spends anything over 100 grand on an F-1 boat they are nuts!

That's nuts you can buy any Activator or Warlock , the two best boats for under 100.

Are these per race prices with or without the help of sponsorships?...

Man, I think it's just sad that you guys have to spend any money at all! I would much rather watch offshore boat racing than the "redneck roundy round" nascar races.

Hopefully some day the sport will catch on a little more and sponsers will be fighting over boats.

Also, an Activator, Warlock, Kryptonite, Superboat, Pantera and I am sure a few more can be purchased race-ready for under $100k.

I believe that the Merc 525 just put them over the $100K mark. And yes, you can lease a GM Vortec and get in new around $70K the first year. You can also purchase just about any used F1 boat for $50k.
