Mike,

140 is smokin'!

Any idea who the v is that's going to try for the kilo at Smoke on the Water? I read on the home page that someone was going to try.

Seen running? Personally?
The INXS Fountain at Key West Worlds- I think it was '94 or '95
Everyone would put their hands over their ears as it was coming in close to us on the breakwall at full throttle- and we had ear plugs in!

jafo,

The INXS Fountain is one of my favorite all time boats. I never got the pleasure to see it in person.

Cool

Probably my all-time favorite too-
This boat was (and still remains) the loudest SOB I have ever heard- a VERY COOL kind of loud.........
I think Audacity's parents have it now? I hope its legend lives on.

I 100% agree. I was simply in the right place at the right time a few years back when Tres owned it. I got to get in it and check it out. He dropped it in the water right then and fired it up. It was the 2nd sweetest sounding boat I've ever heard.

The 1st best? "The Sorcerer" period.

cigracer,

I also 100% agree with you on the Sorcerer. That is the toughest sounding boat I have ever heard in my life.

The Sorcerer is going for the kilo record right?

Any idea who the v-hull is?

I don't know who has the Vee. I have heard rumors like crazy about it though. It could be the Calan Marine guys. Skater has a Vee now too.

Back to the Sorcerer, lets drool for awhile.
