    By the way, I have the 400 Verado and the 350XS ready for you. Are your Kevlar/Carbon hulls ready for testing yet? The guys are still thinning out the skegs and torpedos. We're still getting to much gearcase lift as we pass 120MPH. Need to get them on your light hulls, don't know if the 38 pitch will be enough or if they need to finish the 40s.
    400 Verado/350XS.......40's???????

    that's what I'm talkin' bout!

    Allright--- I went there and have seen the Verado posted at 71.8 MPH ,the draw was 2.6 mpg. I am sure this will vary on boat and speed and propeller choice.

    "sucker"???????? I bet those Mercs "burn" way less than any of them jetboats being entered!! Hey Ron, how bout IF you have a RIDE for the race, the looser between John and me vs. you and driver, pays the winners gas???? Or you build me props for the rest of the year for my Mercs/Yamatos and OMC now. Oh ya, I do NEED you to build me an ASH prop now for the "little" OMC 15A I traded for......PRETTY PLEASE!

    oh ya, I forgot to get a few more of the white BRF stickers to put on the Z-Craft runabout John is picking up....
