Well here we have a similar picture of what "the Doc" was running, sorry we did not get a shot of that nice rig. I think it is a '98 Eliminator 33 with 600CID 725 ft/# of torque Normally aspirated engines with extension boxes with, is everyone sitting down,,,Bravo drives. When sterndrivespec heard that it was like fingernails on a blackboard!!!

John told us Friday night during dinner that he has obviously been thru a few shafts in those Bravo's.
I observed "just have to find a few more cavities to pay for those shafts!!!!"
For dinner John had salt with wings sprinkled over it!

Very nice gentelmen, him and Airpacker talked at lenght about the finer points of tunning eliminator boats. However the salt must help cause Doc John was in great shape Saturday where Sean(Airpacker) looked a little rickled! (Doc John did go to bed 3 hours before Sean)

And the "V" that kept up with all those Cats at the front. This is either Ed (Scarab105)'s rig or his brother, I was told. These guys run some serious HP on those Scarab's they sounded MEAN at the first card stop then I think one of the two I heard lost a drive. But the one that was left was FAST. I'm looking forward to talking with you Ed when we can hook up.

Hey GLH,

Because of all the shortcuts we took trying to keep up we got some good photos. We should have some good video too but I haven't seen it yet. E-mail or PM me your contact info and I'll try to hook you up. (All us OSO freeloaders have lost PM, e-mail and even avatars.)

Frank

LMFAO! Well....I think Champ, the Lake Champlain Monster was hungry and I was his choice for lunch. Looks like one of those birds never got out of the way or I hit something. Maybe a mooring bouy just below the surface?? Not really sure, but I DEFINITELY hit SOMETHING! There is about a 4 inch hole that then began to delaminate an 18 inch section of the bottom and but a really big ding/curl in th prop blade. Oh well. Hopefully the glass guys will be on it by Tuesday and it will be in running order by 1000 Islands! Thanks for a FANTASTIC time and all those guys that said "I'll be there, I'll be there", well you guys missed a GORGEOUS weather day and a GREAT group to run with. Nice meeting some new OSO friends and seeing some older friends as well. You did a great job GLH and THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

That was one FAST vee bottom!!!! I could not believe he ran as fast as long as he did for as long as he did. Everything shook like an earthquake when that Scarab went by. Wicked cool ride and VERY IMPRESSIVE! I don't think the Lake George dikkhead cops would like him too much. I say, bring him down!!! Screw those jerk off cops!
