    Well, he posts a lot of interesting pictures, but we never see any wet pictures or race results
    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.

    just the other day someone was sayin Mark75h, he don't even have a boat, i said no, thats him in his avitar thing with the Merc stacker on it.

    wet shots, if ya can get a clip of film, with them and you goin over the same corse, 5mph is a bunch, should get a real good idea how and ware thay are do in it.
