It's some kind of little hydro...I'm not real familiar with these types of boats. He lives close to me by water and I know he races. I know what his other boat is though...a 30' Spectre with triple 2.5's. The Spectre is REALLY wicked.

Ya gotta sneak those ones below the contour line when nobody's around.

I actually have a yard full of trees but they are gradually disappearing to make way for other things

It is hard to make out, might be a mirage 1/4 master but it does appear to have sponsons that go past the cockpit. Probably a mirage or stv river racer. That is about the cheapest way to break 100mph, just need to be on protective water.

Nevermind after enlarging the picture, it is definately a Mirage 1/4 master. The boats are pretty much drag boats only. Can weight as little as 350-450lbs.

It was 15ft below normal stage and has only come up a little bit, about 2ft. You can see my almost finished dock in the first picture. Usually the water is all the way up between the 2nd and 3rd pole at the start of the pier and the poles at the end are almost totally covered. At the very end of my stationary dock you can just see the corner of my floater which is sitting on the ground, it is normally 15ft deep off my floater.

They will supposedly be far enough along with the back up damn to start letting it come up in July, I'll believe it when I see it . It should be back to full by next year at worse, hopefully sooner, I'm ready

I think you nailed it. I don't know him personally but was told that he runs drag boats. I heard one of them (maybe the one pictured) ran around 117 in the 1/4 mile.
