i did that legal,not with 540 bulldogs and cams, I rather have one win without cheating than all his with cheating. I guess you're that kind of person like him.

I have 2 questions....these are not intended to be controvercial so do not read into them.
1. What Hp did each boat have during their speed runs?
2. What was the weight of each boat after the speed runs?

The fact that an offshore boat is competing for a kilo record seems silly and out of place to me. That's like having a motocross bike enter into a quarter mile drag race. Keep 'em offshore...if there is such a thing anymore. Let the hydros or drag boats compete for the kilo record.

You folks are funny.

So what a boat builder showed up with boats running on what top fuel. Alcohol, methane, 113 Octane. NHRA has guide lines for top fuel. Why even bother. At that point would you would throw a turbine in it. At least it is not a core hopefully after 2-8 hours of use if your lucky.

A true test would be 2 hp525's in each of these boats. Oh yeah and let Skater participate with that 39 V. Do you ever hear a word about Outerlimits challenging Skater. Hey he makes a 39V.

INDY, that's exactly right. If it's admitted that you can't run 100+ offshore because you're gonna get 6 footers and more most of the time, then why spend all your talent and energy trying to go over 160. It's a better idea to use that energy in trying to get that boat to hold up for more than 5 miles before you lose an ignition module or a belt or whatever the hell lets go on those boats every time. top speed is useless if your average sucks...

enzo ferarri said something like "to arrive first, you firstly have to arrive..."
