Yeah how many guys taste the freakin water to make sure its not brackish.LOL

Your insane mike.

Id bet its the same amount of guys who would owns 2 sutphens for several months and still not have used them for at least a shakedown run!


I think Mike likes the Idea of Owning a Sutphen more than he like the thought of USING a sutphen. I will break him of that in the near future though, If I have to corner him with the rest of the CPBA guys to get it done!


How its not killing him for them to just sit there Ill never know. Its freaking Killing me and there not even my boats.

Where are you MIKE !!!! Its getting nice again you need to get that damn boat out!!!

I met Mike at the ramp yesterday as we were coming in, he and Jeff were splashing the 33 for the first time. Mike was nice enough to invite Christine and I along for the maiden voyage. What a super nice guy and he found himself one AMAZINGLY CLEAN 33! I was shocked at the condition of the boat given the age.

Congrats Mike on the great find, and it was an absolute pleasure meeting you! Also, thanks again for the ride! :cool:

Finally got the boat out on the water for the first time yesterday. Except for a leaking speedometer water line and a sticky ignition switch, the boat went great. Thanks to Jeff, Scott and Christine for taking the time to help out. Scott, your boat is awesome. Explicit Airbrushing applied the name. You can't see it in the photos, but he ghosted racing checkers in mother of pearl behind the lettering.

Thanks Scott,
It was wonderful to meet meet you and Christine yesterday. The sound of your boat is amazing. It was so cool to hear it first and then see it come into view as you turned the corner coming into Hayes Haven. I had a blast yesterday. I was so excited I couln't sleep last night, but that could have been those dam Red Bulls I drank.

Thanks for the kind words Mike. Looking forward to seeing you and your boat out again soon. There are quite a few performance boaters in our area that run together, I hoping to see you join the fun in the not to distant future. If you're looking to get out on the weekends and need a hand (on the water or in the air), please feel free to give me a shout.

Thanks Scott, I'm working this weekend but if anything should change or any flights pop up and I'm in need of a co-pilot, I will give you a call.
Jeff got the boat up to 75 on the GPS yesterday and then we had to slow for a no wake zone. That was with 4 on board and full fuel(180 gal.) I'm hoping for 80 with a lighter load and the boat trimmed out. Chip at Competition Marine said he had it up to 83-85 mph but that might have been on the speedo. It's amazing how well it does going over cruiser wakes. Like ridding in a caddy.
