WOW!

Out at Parker we saw an outboard race with some v-drives, kind of a pointless story without the proper details, but I was surprised - he didn't come in last. 3rd or 4th I believe out of 6.

Are you positive, I think that there was a guy that had three 2.5 mercury drag motors on the back.

Like I said it's kind of pointless without certain details, like which class he was racing in, what kind of v-drives he was competing with, etc... but I am positive he had ONE black (Merc. ?) outboard on the back of it. It was a red hull.   ;D   ???

in the late 80s at Advantage, the first partycat outboard we built was for a wealthy Texan, I take that back. The first outboard was for Mert Littlefield, of blower fame, the second was for this other guy. We built it with twin OMCs on the back. I don't remember the HP rating, been a long time, but whatever was the biggest engine at the time, that's what we used. Anyway, it ran high 80's. Shoot, that was almost 20 years ago.  ;) I would think the record is much higher than 81 today.
This was before we had the 'glass' deck on them, they were just a flat deck with railing, canvas and seats but still, that's honkin'.

What's shady about it?
I would think 81 in an aluminun 'tri-toon' (not a pontoon) is pretty good. There's a record, or a worlds fastest, for every damn thing built. Boats are no different. Shit, back in the early 70s at Tahiti we had the worlds fastest jet powerd tri hull...didn't mean a thing. It's all marketing.  ;)

The fact that the whole boat isn't touching the water and looks like it's about ta' blow over looks shady ta' me..;) I can't image going much faster then that in one without a certified death sentence! And how fast was the worlds fastest jet powered tri-hull?

Taco'd "a person or people that show up with one lake lice and a family of 50 and cram 3 people at a time on it with no disregard to boating rules or ethics. Usualy crap in toilets and throw shit paper in trash cans. Hang out at the boat ramp like its a swimming hole. Have zero insurance on anything they own and dont give two shits less about your property."

Hell, I think it looks good in that shot, but you can't tell a thing on how it rides from a single snap shot of the run. I know what you mean though, but to me it looks shaky, not shady. Shady to me is someone that dishonest.  :D And the last 3 or 4 feet of the pontoons are still in the water, not that hairy of a ride.



Oh that 'worlds fastest tri-hull' at Tahiti...never saw the water. It was a pure advertisement ploy. It had a 427 chevy, custom made dry stacks, nice intake and carbs and so on including painted down the side...'TAHITI Worlds Fastest Tri Hull', the speed and ET too.   

Now THAT'S shady.  ;)

My dad and another rigger took it to the water after it had been sitting around for a while, Schuster would have it sitting out front of the shop, (or even better, in the parking lot at boat shows!) and threw a rod outa the block trying to get that big toad close to the advertised speed. lol. I don't remember now what the speed was.

shady, shakey, sketchy.....call it what you want, I wouldnt want to be on that deck doin 80.  8) An 80mph gust of wind would be enough to toss that beer can over like a sheet of paper.
