Default Who Owns This Gladiator?

Today in the Barnaget Bay we ran around with this Gladiator. It was a side by side mostly yellow with OH reg. numbers. He said he was an OSO member but I couldn't hear what his name was. The boat has 575SCI and runs 97 MPH. All I could say is wow.....

If your out there, we were in the Yellow "Rolling Thunder" Cat.

Anyone know him?

Bobby

PS-I have more pictures I'll post tomorrow of his boat.

What a blast running out there today with you in Rolling Thunder. Scarab29 and I ran to NYC today to watch the SBI race and found you in the Barnaget when we were returning home. I live in Point Pleasant so our paths will cross again. Lucididee, great picture, you took that at the Point Pleasant Race, Thanks. Tell Mike I say HI.

Yeah!!! My mother is fine, but she'll be sore today! Thank you for coming back to check on us.

Our mouths droped when you guys got on it....You guys were the only people we could find that could beat us yesterday. Great run - great looking boat.

TSU RACING-Great run; we will meet again. Hopefully for a little longer stretch. We'll get real low on fuel next time to beat you guys .

I have pictures I'll post later; if you guys have some, please post them!

A cat getting beat by a Cig. THAT will leave a mark. Ah ah ah, no excuses! The Cigarette god's must have heard you were desperately trying to leave the family!


Way to go Gladiator!
