Tres Martin can hold his ground against anybody. I'd love to see Lance Henrichsen in a big boat. If somebody buys me a zillion dollar cat I bet I could run it.

JT, true World Champion, also has the knowledge and skill to set the boat up to win. He is also just a good guy on top of that.

I would say Tommy from Chief Engines. Used to race for Apache and they destroyed everyone when they were racing "Predator" 41' Apache the last couple years.

I've been in the Buzzi boats with both Sirois and Gilbreath, both are/were great but couldn't run them like an Italian!!!

Tres Martin was the only person I could say I ran alongside that could run a boat like an Italian!!!
I love your post...I think your nuts, but I love your post...

"run a boat like an Italian".....That's classic.
....
Bobby Saccenti is the best Italian Throttleman... as far as Fabio is concerned...he's a true genius, and I admire him tremendously..but you rarely throttle a diesel..and he always seemed to be in a bigger more powerful boat than his competition (he is a genius after all).

Fabio is one of the sport's icons, but his talent as a T man is not his greatest asset IMHO. As far as Stefano, rest his soul, he was not in the same league as others on this thread again IMHO.

Tres, Richie Powers, John Connor, and many others deserve honorable mention.....

I'll go with my original list.........

On the other hand , where do you put Odell Lewis, John Bakos, Don Pruett, John Stenbach, Dave Gilmore, etc, etc, etc...
