Thumbs up The ALL-TIME Worlds BEST Throttle Man is....

The man who can really make that boat fly level, without ECXESSIVE over-reving in rough water....The all-time GREATS are few and far between: Mark Lavin, Bill Sorois, Bobby Saccenti, Erol Lanier, Pete Hildago and so on...who thinks WHO is the best...and who would you like to run wtih...think there were a lot of cool races back when...any input>

Today IS John Tomlinson............but I've only been serious about since 17 and I actually got my OWN boat and known enough to reply on something like this.

However when I was watching races with my late father I didn't know any names, so again JT.
