My best guess is that the panache' of breaking the 200 mph barrier in a V-Bottom is out there and close to possibly becoming reality. Reggie is 23mph away from doing it in a one way pass. My feeling is that it is not a priority at this moment. But who knows.

Same thing I thought. It reminded me of a bass boat blowing by at 85mph. (but dam# those things are fun to drive.)

It was nice to see the run, but could they please turn off that STUPID music, so we can hear the engines.

Is Outerlimits still using Sterling power? I thought I read Racecrafters was going to supply the engines?

The rumor is Reggie has already been above 180 ,But he has a new longer hull for the next round. I figure 189-193mph.

Just think if they hit a wake at those speeds .


Mike has a little kid now to think about,is it worth it?

Just curious...
The Pamlico is a river. Anyone know if there is any substantial current running down the river? That might explain how one of his record passes was higher than the other

Awesome boats and an awesome run & record, but if they keep this up someones gonna get killed, and that will be a shame & a great loss to the powerboating community.
