    Hey Thats my boat. I am up in Toronto Canada on Lake Simcoe. So far 113 mph. Need bigger props to try and get off guardian with overspeed. We have 36 labbed bravos right now. Going to try adding cup. Love the boat so far. 13 hours. Bob Leach and crew were fantastic to deal with. He had another boat at the Toronto show and I ordered one right away. I still have a 1988 27 Eliminator Daytona with twin 300x motors (2004). 85 mph. This new one is a blast.

    113 with 525's, are you kidding me? wow

    Imagine some mild mannered 600's could put it close to 120.

    Very nice boat.

    I didn't do very much that hadn't already been done by Eliminator. The gel design was the same as the first two boats but more orange was added and silver/grey substituted for blue. The interior was a "borrowed" design from another builder. Eliminator did a great job matching it. Best part of the build so far is the Mercury Vessel View. All the information in front of you including specific alarm codes in memory. Oh yeah and Gallons per hour (make that seconds).

    Dam Shelly, thats nice looking. I guess we need to have an Eliminator get together at Big Chief this summer.
    Hows the lake been? I was up at Couch a couple weekends ago and it was pretty bad for floating debris still. Saw a few whole fricken trees out there. Any better now or worse after the rains?

    Sure would like to get an up close and personal tour of that bad azz new ride.

    PS, I was talking to Bob about coming up here to run the PBCC Muskoka Lakes Charity Fun Run this summer. Maybe you could put another bug in his ear about it? August 14th at the Wharf in Gravenhurst.

    PSS, Jay R was back in town this week. Looking more and more like a native Caribbean Islander as he gets older I tell ya


    Look forward to running into you out on the lake sometime soon.

    113, wow that is amazing. does eliminator vacuum bag the boat or do kevlar lay ups? For that boat to run that fast I would think it is a real light layup. Regardless, awesome boat and best of luck with it. Post some more pics or even videos of it running.
