The 47 OL ROCK IT is or was Bob Russells boat. It is not a GTX. The last time I saw it, it had big power, super clean and very fast. It has Fred Flintstone on the side as part of the graphics scheme.

"Rock-it" is a 42' Outerlimits. Bob Russell sold it last year and now has a 42' Outerlimits GTX, about 3000 horsepower with speeds almost 150 mph. It's named "Can you hear me now?". The new boat will be at our Fun Run tommorow, Saturday, July 26. I will post a couple of pics from my site after the run. Here is a link to some pics of "Can you hear me now?". I hope to get a few better ones.

As Joe said at the start of the Pittsburg, CA race Rock It left everyone at the start including the Super Cats....When he came through the part of the course known as New York Slew which is an s-turn he was clocked at 125+ mph......Not bad for a boat with a toilet in it......

OLs are sweet. sy goldberg keeps telling me about how he was in some boat running 100+ at the 1000 island poker run last year when the fiore's ran up next to him, recognized him (he insures most of thier boats) and they punched the throttles and took off like he was standing still (running at 100+) within a few moment they were out of site. God knows how fast they were going. I would assume it was speeds that most "normal" cats don't run.

Truly Badass Rides. Can anyone loan me 400-500k ???
