Default Now for something different - Zoomies

I just got back from Trinidad where I covered the Great Race for Extreme Boats Magazine. It should make for a great article and hopefully some incredible photos (I didn't have Jamie Russel with me so I went in the chopper and shot slides like he does. Hopefully I got some good ones.)

I went to Trini rather than Orange Beach because my old boat (Mr. Technology) was racing again. This was it's second race since being rerigged. It now has 580ci Blue Thunder Engines and #V drives on stand off boxes. The engine room was so tight normal headers wouldn't fit, tractor headers wouldn't fit. So check out these custom made water cooled ZOOMIES!

This was the greatest sounding boat I've ever heard. Louder than loud with a very crisp tone.

Hopefully they will be bringing it to Key West in November along with Mr Solo a 40' MTI that's built to be SuperCat Legal.

This article should be out in time for the Worlds in Key West. Hopefully you'll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed attending the event and writing the article.

I can't believe some else besides me has a pulling tractor and a boat. Talk about two black holes to dump money in!
