Put everyone on the trailer:)Unsure I think you have been mis informed. We were all there that year and the only person to trailer everyone was Costintino in his flat. There was a red and white gullwing that gave him a pretty good run but thats all I remember.:D

No offence but you got a sales pitch.

No, I'll post some pic when we get the boat. 2 to 3 weeks I'm not trying to sell the boat. I just really wanted to find some pic on the net to save on my pc. The boat had a 15-1 496 bbc in it and I was told it did like 120+. Now before any one freeks out I cant say that all of this is facts. Just what my old man told me. I'm just looking for some pic of the boat or if any one knew anything about it.

Yep you guys are right on. Joe is Mikes father inlaw. We bought the boat from Joe. Yet it will not be a crasy as it was then. Joe is building a mild 454-468 for us. We are just hopeing for a good 90MPH boat. I was also told that it was like a 350lb lay up. When I get back from Vagas I will try to post some pic of it. The boat is like brand new looking. It sould be a really fun toy for this summer. My lod man said that he will have to teach me how to run the boat. I'm not much of a jet boat guy, I like the bigger ones a little better. So I don't have much seat time in one. But that will soon change. It might start to get addicting. If any one has or finds some think please let me know


Thanks Brayden Pauletto

Turkeymelt, he didnt buy the all yellow "strictly biz" boat we saw at WF, he bought the multi colored deal from the aha labor day event with the yellow JP scoop. He was out racing blunder, Harlan was not driving that day. There should be pics of it in the "jetboat pics" thread.
