my brother Timmy who works for Pompi told me your chase boat had a real hard time getting to the boat after your run.He said you were sinking.

I am not sure if that boat will look good with the brown racing stripes on the seats now.

The ride wasn't as bad from the cockpit. The GPS recalls were 206 and 207...
I forgot about the brake system, are yours electric aplied? Or can you feather the pressure manualy?

It made a gradual right turn after the finish line. We were straight but real loose over the line...

Electrically actuated hydraulic (titanium) discs with with dual 4 piston calipers. We spin the prop just under 10k rpm at the Shootout...the brakes get a work out when applied.

Tachyon, I'm looking forward to seeing your new hull. When's it comming out of the mold? I'm planning a trip out your way and want to check out the progress. I understand your're re-powering w/ V12's?

Thank you, guessing that has something to do with the turbine. The boat really looked good running. Again thanks
