Please don't yell at me for posting this on "Sail"net. Just wanted to share something fun I did.

This boat had 2500hp. We went 110mph. It was probably the most amazing machine I've ever ridden in.

FYI - There is a race coming up in Solomon's Island on October 1st thru 3rd. So you may either want to check it out OR steer far away from there that weekend.

Looks like a Jenneau to me.. maybe a Fantasia. Shame about losing the rig.

Right down into the belly of the beast -- the dankest depths of the dark side. Kind of cool, if you ask me. In a "that was interesting for a few minutes" kind of way, a bit like an amusement park ride.

When I see these going by on the Bay, I imagine one guy saying to the other: "When is it my turn to push the throttle?"

110 mph!! Any idea what the fuel burn was at that speed?;)

By the way, my minivan goes faster than that.:D :D :D :D

That boat is an Apache - a legendary high performance boat designed by the famous Don Aranow who founded Cigarette Boats.
