Hope you guys have better luck this year.


How do things look with your boat? Are you and Mike planning to do all three runs?
Dock 70mph Boats are kind of like Baja's they are a dime a dozen and anyone can have one. But when you break the 90mph mark you do tend to break things. With that said, you should be safe.

Yes we do plan on making the trip on Friday, and the poker run on Saturday, but I don't think we will have time to make the run on Sunday.

Dock,

If need be I'll give you a ride, and I'm pretty sure that we won't have any problems getting past 90.

And if my memory from last year serves me correctly, you should know exactly what I mean by breaking parts in a not so stock boat.

Dock I never said anything about a race, we were talking about a velocity that broke an outdrive last year. You know like the one you broke at the beginning of the year. And from that it turned into something totally different. All I said and if you will read my earlier post you will see it was (I have my fingers crossed that everyone makes the run without a problem).
But I am sure if you guys want to play there will be some faster Velocity's than mine there. Maybe another boat with 2 engines instead of 1.
