Project Three Figures ????

I was looking at a website a few months back about a guy in the states who bought a second hand sportsboat and step by step made alterations to acheive 100mph. I think it was called Project Three Figures or something simular.

Has anybody else seen this or have I dreamt it?

Can't find it on google etc

You need to think in 'American speak'.

a quick google, using the American translation finds this:

"Project Triple Digits"

http://forums.screamandfly.com/forum...d.php?t=170607

Actually, this looks to be the original:

"Project Triple Digits on Pump Gas"

Its worth a look if you haven't seen it before.

They didn't like him on that forum much though!

Not surprised:

"I go 94 mph in 3 foot rollers with white caps winds gusting. So I guess for now I will keep mine"

That is pure fiction in that POS he's got.

Triple digits, maybe, in MPH,.. I doubt it. In 3 foot rollers, no f*cking way.
