Pier 57 Fountain (North Carolina), Ohio Steel canapied Fountain (Key West), INxs canapied Fountain (Key West), and OuterLimits GTX (Key West 2002). Out of all of these the INxs and Ohio Steel Fountains were the most impressive for me. LOUD, LOUD, LOUD!!

The Outerlimits stable at the Lake Cumberland poker run the last couple of years has been amazing. What a show.

Thumbs up

check out to see and hear the sorceror. Rod is a friend of mine and I have been in all his boats. You think the Sorceror sounds incredible, you should feel what 4000 horsepower feels like two foot behind you. I also know which boats are going after the kilo records.

At the cancelled LOTO Kilo last year...Mike Fiore's 42 Outerlimits GTX saw speeds that were consistantly higher that the current V-botton Kilo record. I bet he'll be at the APBA sanctioned event in MI this Spring.

Default Outerlimits

The OL and Sterling combination is gonna blow all the V records away. I've seen and know the driveline/engine package, nobody has ever been more serious about making big #'s. All the big #'s will come with Fiore running it cause at those speeds it gets VERY dicey. I personally have not been in the boat but my conversation with someone who has at 137+ with Fiore, went like this " I ain't gettin back in " and this person has spent alot of time at 135- 155mph in Skaters. If you knew what was involved to get the OL to these crazy speeds it would amaze you, I appreciate all they do cause there is a trickle down, I'm just glad it's their money and their ass on the line. I wish them the best and truly hope nothing goes amiss in their quest for 150 !
