Couldn't agree more, no nothing of this make or what engines it ran except RB site states 1000HP but it did kick some ass...if this was the future of powerboat racing think I'd take up watching tiddlywinks

Mercruisers 525 and XR drives never missed a beat.

They were great guys and always seemed to be enjoying themselves. I had a chat to them on the Monday evening, congratulating them on their performance etc, and unfortunately mentioned their boat was a little unusual looking.

All I can say is they are quite proud of the boat as one of the chaps wanted to kill me!

Although I still am not keen on the boat, after reading the other posts I guess there is more important things than the boat, like some great guys with a sense of adventure with a touch of partying thrown in for good measure plus a dam good result

PS...and they put to shame some great looking pointy boats not bad going

Amazing what 1100hp will do to even things up.

They never drank untill they reached Scotland. We put them to shame on that one and they had reliability.

Welcome! I would like to congratulate on doing so well in your first race! An unlikely looking race boat but you got a great result.
