Running a 100+MPH Sunsation for the day....

John and Kristin,,,,thanks a TON for yesterday....my first time on a pleasure boat in sometime!...damn race boats consume all my time...

I had the pleasure of driving their twin supercharged 32 for the day...not many cars have this kind of acceleration! UNREAL!

I had a ton of fun with some great people! THANKS for taking me out once again J&K!!!...now back to race boat crap!

Come on Joey, How could I not let you take the wheel for the day considering you're always there when I need help to keep the thing running! It was great having you on board! Kinda nice to just sit back and relax for a day and let someone else drive my ass around the lake! You and Dre are welcome anytime you get a free weekend! Good luck in Sarasota....

Not sure if I'll be able to yank that hing off before you leave, feeling really unmotivated at this time.... Why do today what you can put off till tomorrow!

Lee, hope to see you guys out on the lake soon too.... Good luck if you guys are running this weekend!

Is that the boat Powerboat just did a recent test on ?? Thats a Rocket!!
The power to weight ratio was incredible. I think you could run some bigger props. The limiting factor would be the durability of the drives.

Good luck

I'm guessing that driving a 100 mph Sunsation is a lot more fun than wrenching on one!

Glad you guys made it out this weekend. I'm still fighting high idle and fuel pressure issues on one motor. I'm hoping to be ready for this weekend... but who knows. We will all get together this summer... I hope!
