I have heard Callan, Big Thunder, and Bacardi Silver and nothing I have ever heard compares to Big Thunder running right off the Sea Wall in Key West from Mallory square. I think the closeness of the boat and the reverb from the buildings and Seawall made it twice as mean.
Thats my vote and anyone who was at Mallory square in 1998or 99 would probably agree

Of course I have not heard the other boats in this poll but the inXS Fountain has been and probably always will be my all time favorite offshore racer. You could hear that thing before it came over the horizon. Someone should post videos of all boats in the poll if you have them.

No question about it, the Sorcerer! When there is 3 or 4 seconds between lopes, and the lopes are just heart pounding, that is horsepower. Unless you have heard it in person, you can't even comprehend.

I guess most of you guys have never seen a T/F boat blast through a 1/4 mile

I agree- the seawall at Key West is a natural amplifier for loud exhaust. I'd have to vote for INXS- with its sideways-facing pipes, people would have their ears covered when the boat was over a half mile away in anticipation. It was downright painful, but you had to love it! Big Thunder has a cool sound, but not quite the crackle or db of the old INXS dry pipes.
