It wasn't an STV.

It was something else - didn't get a good look at it.
It was a tunnel outboard. Sounded good but wasn't very fast.
If I see him again I will see if He will let me drive it and give him some advise to make it go faster.
It was kind of yellow and orange.

There was a capsule boat ( like an STV ) up at the sandbar doing drags.
He did 114 on GPS and was doing high speed turns. WOW
HE would be going like 70 - 80 MPH and just flip it around and go back the other way.
It was all white with no markings at all ( NO RACE # )

Was it an 18' all white mirage with a mercury drag motor? It was probably Rob (a real tall guy). If so, that boat flat out gets it!
I am heading up to Hardy with the American Offshore Thursday night to meet up with Wette Vette. I want to try and get a few hours on the boat too.
I think we are planning on staying until Suday afternoon, so maybe we will see you there.

Well, despite the activities in GH, Hardy was still a great time! Maybe not quite as many hot rods as normal, but pretty busy. Here are some pictures of our group from the weekend.

Here are some photos of the new WETTE VETTE. Best speed is 112 MPH turning a 30 Bravo 1 labbed prop 6600 RPM through 1.36 gears. I will be trying a 32 lab hoping to pull 6000 - 6300 RPM and hopefully better than 112.
