This boat was the absolute CHIT at this show. The attention to detail is like nothing I have ever seen before. The longer you gawk at it the more you see. Unfortunately, I did not have a camera. The paint looked like it was 3D. Everywhere on the boat there was a theme of some sort. There was a Hell of a Lot of little things to see. Did anyone happen to look at the shock mounting brackets of the engiine hatch? They were stamped metal in the form of a speedometer!!!! These are shock mounting brackets for Pete's sake! Unbelievable. The owner gets my vote for TOP DOG.

oh yeah, and did you notice the suede side panels in the cockpit???????????

With that much hardware in Miami its hard to stand out. But the Speedracer Mti definitely DID. Somebody might come up with a different theme, but it will be tough to top the detail. I'm trying to find the pic of Speedracer art on the drive shaft cover. I talked to the owner and the person responsible for the graphics, just awesome. Doug

For me personally - taking into account that I have a "budget" for my next boat, the NorTech 39V was my pick of the show. But for overall pick, yeah Speed was by far the nutz!!! The "sticker" right by the fuel fill turned out to be paint!! Everything on this boat was insane, I have never seen a paint job like this!

1.1 Mill does not do justice for this piece of art, money will spent,just because it is the talk of the show. I`m glad I had the chance to see it in person, never had I spent so much time looking at a boat.
