NEWER STUFF HAHA that boat is only a few years old its got a trick back to it. and they got pushed out of p2 cause they KILLED, KICKED THE AZZ OUT OF THE LID BOATS running that class P2 which is a 105mph break out and pushed into a 115mph break out class P1. the only guys in a OPEN SPORT BOAT THAT HAS A BACK SEAT. LOTS of DRAG against a lid boat more DANGEROUS than a lid boat. those GUYS HAVE EXTRA LARGE GONADS to race lap after lap all out against cats with lids/vees with lids. they deserve a trophy for being real men and not crying about being moved up. its real hard to run 80 to 90 with a helmet on lap after lap it kills your neck and shoulders but at 100 to 115 is nuts. I hope walter comes back next year and hope they put them back in p2. I always new he was tough guy man. I am glade the night of my bachlor party my best man came up with the balance for walt for my party going on 24years ago hahaha. TKOs/GAP has the best food and drinks around. walt your a true VIKING

haha yeah right my fathers got the money, im just one of his employees and i cant get him to buy a hi-perf boat cause he would never buy a boat with big blocks in it. Hes looking at a 50 Nortech with triple diesels but thats about as hi performance as he gets. Also, watch out for the 40 flat deck skater "scaredy cat" this summer on the sound. A good family friend just bought it and is dropping in a pair of sterling 1550's ........the yellow boat is gone. it went down to aruba and thats the last i heard about it.....

Must be nice!


I used to go down your dads place when I was in my teens with freinds. I remeber all the old parted out planes down there.

Idnt your brother or someone sell used plane parts to the aircraft industry or refurbish them or something?

My father started with smaller airplanes, but just buys and rebuilds private jets now. The place in plainville is more of just a hobby shop now because the stuff we do is too big to go in and out of plainville. So, our main operation is down in groton.
