I'm TNYoungblood on any forum im on, my name is Mike Edmondson and I live in Clarksville, TN .. I've been jet boating for several years now and just started Drag boat racing last year .. I eat, sleep, and breath this crap, it has took all my money that I have and will be making in the near future :wink2: so if your new to this crap run like Hell !!!!! This shit is like drugs, it will sink its claws into you and won't let go .. Your ol lady will start bitching at you for being on this forum all the time and spending all your money on a POS jet boat ... LOL !!!!! Anyways welcome to the PB site, there is alot of good information on here and sum bullshit but it's all good shit .. I run a 10.0 Drag boat with the KDBA and I have a Gullwing that is my "Lake Boat" that I run on the weekends on the Cumberland River here in town and every now and then we will take a road trip to hang out with my Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas buddies ... I have met alot of great folks jet boating and I wouldn't have it any other way :thumb:

Hydrounlimiteds

Hello, performance boaters. I'm from the great state of Washington. I currently own a 94 20' Barefoot Sangar with 200hp oil injected BM.
My first boat was 18' STV Tri tunnel vee with a 200hp aspirated BM. That was back in the late 80s. Missed that boat. It would fly at 85mph. Thought that was fast then. Now its slow:)
Looking for a pickle fork or semi vee with big engine! I'm in the need for speed !

Hello all. My name is Tony. I've loved the drag and circle races for many years ( form the early 60s in Oakland ) . I'm a Viet Nam Vet and crewed the F-4 Phantom and F-105 Thunderchief for 6 years in the USAF. Now I'm crewing a F-4 in our local Air Museum but still love the flat bottoms hot boats. I am trying to build an RC Scale K-boat with V-drive and nitro engine.
