    Default pretty fast lake boat at cfw

    I have never seen this boat at cfw, but there was this lil bubble deck jet out there this past sunday. It was blue with flake, with a blue scoop. Single carb'd ford. It fired up sounded healthy, when he stuck his foot in it I wasn't expecting that. -PUTA- that boat flat out moved!

    I still cannot believe it happened. I was sober too! Hoping that someone knows this dude and can post a pic. I was in shock and didn't think to take a pic. that jet had to have been in the teens.. I know I know, its not a tunnel and it wasn't a gullwing.

    This must be a misprint, everyone knows that Fords don't make any power.
    Nice!

    Sounds like a boat that "Lakes Only" (Paul Kane) might have had a hand in. sounds like the guy resides in the right neighborhood for it.

    I was out here and talked to him. His name is Bob, from the bay area. He came in from a run Sunday and told his peeps he picked up 5 mph pulling his baffles. 111 mph, I watched it run. Definitely quick, but I am doubting the speeds he was claiming. If it is that fast, he should definitely be going down to Ming!!!!

    I don't want to sound like a doubting Thomas, but he didn't know about Place diverters or what his nozzle was set at. He may have been BS'ing me, but it didn't seem like it.
