Im from Cali, and couldnt agree more. All the boat mfg'r on the west coast run center pods with twin engine applications and build there boats with open bows, and cabins 80% of the time. Some of these boats are traveling at speeds in excess of 140mph, and are time bombs. Forget about them using Foam Core Balsa, Epoxy Resin, Kevlar, or even Vacum Bagging. They build them cheap and sell them for big dollars. Most of the people running over here have no clue in the difference of manufacturing, and do not care as long as they own what people think are cool. The sad part is that most of these guys are spending over 250K on a 29' cat and it is all plywood and vinyl ester. They look pretty run fast and thats all that matters them.

Hi 3DO,

Not sure if Maximus sent this photo. I made a still from a poker Run video shot last year. We were running from Venice back to Tierra Verde with Jay on the outside. The chopper was about 10 feet off the deck. We were running in light/medium seas, perfect sun, perfect day. No one in the run could keep up with us. The chopper stayed with us for about 4 minutes. Maximus is driving, I'm in the passenger seat with my hand in the air.

I miss that boat. Marc sent me some videos of you running after the repower. Congrats.

By the way, if you can get a copy of the video, they have some sweet music playing while we are running.
