lucky indeed. Ive been 103 in my buddys cat and 100 on land is nothing like doing it on water. Cant say id ever want to go in the 130+ range.


If i ever sell one of my cars a gofast boat will be taking its place [8D]
Yea its a whole different feeling on water, I know a guy that goes to the river with us that has a rapid craft riot, about 20-23 foot with a mercury outbord, fastest he has ran was 105 mph ive been in it doing 100 mph and its pretty scary because you cant feel the boat on the water, the hull is trimmed so much all you feel is floating on air. His friend has a little bigger tunnel hull boat with twin outboards that runs 130mph. Fasters ive been on land is 120 on the freeway with some friends. lol good times
indeed. Ill go 130 on land all day before going 130 on water (but who knows LOL). Ive been 170 on land on a GSXR1100 and somewhere in the 150-160's in my car (speedo dont go over 150 lol). This was all done on a private test track in mexico of course..no laws broken
Id go 130+ on water as long as it was a little bigger boat that you feel like one gust of wind wont send it flying
The fastest I've been on water is 70mph by a 4 seater River Racer. The guy wouldn't open her up. On land was no more than 100mph.

>100 is too scary. I'm happy with anything less than 100 over 70. (boat)

One you get to 100 or more you need sunglasses to see because the wind is so hard its hard to see and keep your eyes open

Indeed. When i went 170 on the bike it was at night... talk about not being able to see anything. The lights on the poles were just blurs going by.

Thats a tough break. Looks like the damage was localized though and wont require a full paint job. You could almost do the "orange tips for visibility" trick that will both make it easier to see and cover the damage up (though wont restore the same great looks)

It almost done! I'd brushed the base coat for now,for looks purpouse.I'll take it to my shop somtime this week to finish painting it with a small spray gun.I've been in autobody painting for 20 years now,so it would be very hard to match the paint or see any damages on it.Heres the pic whats done so fare.

Hell is a town here in Michigan over on the other side of the state from me. It would be funny if the local weathermen used that as a comparison to our weather!

Just some trivia. The boat in this picture belonged to George C. Scott. The boat's captain told Scott it was too dangerous to depart. Mr. Scott demanded the boat to be somewhere that required it to leave immediately, so the captain had Scott sign a release saying that the boat was leaving against the captain's better judgement.

It didn't even make it to the breakwater before one engine broke, and the boat had no choice but to limp back in. Over 200K in damage was done.
