He brought that beast down here for the Lake Cumberland poker run year before last. That thing is amazing.

Sorcerer is a cat, I thought this was for V-Hull.

My bet would be the 55 Callan from an email ( I cannot produce) from a GOOD source of 20?mph can anyone fill in the last digit.

I know the number but just want to check if right.

June '03 Family and Performance Boating pg.24 - Outerlimits 42 GTX, 1400 Sterlings...148 MPH. Owner is looking for more power; wants 155 MPH. The article claims this boat, at 148 MPH, is 5 MPH over the previous V-bottom record. Is this accurate?

Didn't see it run, but the fastest v-bottom I've ever seen would have been the Outerlimits 42' GTX's. They had two at LOTO in Dec. for a APBA kilo run that got cancelled because of permits and weather problems. They were expecting 150mph. They had a "back-up" in case one broke!!!!!!!!

Early Ohio Steel, maybe the first, testing in Sandusky Bay by Lake Erie. It was a Fountain, wasnt it? Very loud and flying.
