  1. TODAYS SPECIAL! A Mind blowing display of DCB's Skills

    This is a great example to show how far the best in the Industry has come in just under a decade. Kenny Gonzales purchased this boat from Maxed Out Marine with the intentions of taking what is arguably a very nice boat and updating it to the best that 2017 has to offer! DCB has recently purchased new sewing machines, and Tony was quick to point out that they are the only ones in...
  2. Wag the Dog - What's the Fastest 400 Boat? DCB Might have the Answer

    Approximately two weeks ago we published an article about "Bullhead Bully" (Paul Wallner) in his 28 SS running 126 MPH in his 28 Nordic SS with Twin 400's. At the end of that article I wrote that it, to our knowledge, was the fastest stock 400 boat out there.

    DCB is not one to be outdone, and in a direct response to that article (and threads in our forums)...
  3. Cobra Power Boats - SHOP TOUR

    I recently took a trip down back to Southern California to visit several industry related shops, and boat builders. One of the stops made a lasting impression on me, and that was Cobra Boats! It has been years since I have taken a hard look at what Cobra is doing (pre-recession LA Boatshow was probably the last time), if we offered a "Most Improved Manufacturer" award at RDP, they would...
  4. Concept Marine Shop Tour

    Just a quick article on the shop tour we took down at Concept Speed and Marine mid last week!

    This is what the shop looked like when we pulled up.

    The place was absolutely littered with Schiada's and bad ass boats. As we stepped inside there was a pretty good back drop for a video. A really nice...
  5. Nordic 28SS Runs 126 MPH with twin 400R's! The Bullhead Bully is on top!

    The Bullhead Bully is on top of the world right now with his latest evening runs yesterday topping out at 126MPH!!

    If you are wondering if it ends here, the general consensus is there's even more to go! The boat was dropped off at Nordic this morning where they are going to make a small modification to the bottom of the boat to allow him to keep water pressure and raise the jack plates a...

    IF YOU DON'T WANT ATTENTION, this boat is not for you. Designed and built by Errol Lanier a legendary Racer. The best riding boat under 25 feet by far and I have owned over 10 cats in my lifetime.

  14. Teague Projects & Installations: Colledgewood 40SS Tails

    An extremely custom transformation was in order for arguably one of the most custom Skaters in existence: Gary and Rosemary Colledge's 40SS "Colledgewood". The team at TCM built new tailpipes and completely changed the exit pattern of the tails through both the transom and deck extension of the boat. All fiberglass and fabrication work was done in house.

    The Colledgewood...
  15. Some new faces on RDP in 17

    I hope that everybody had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. Speaking for ourselves we had a great time with the neighbors, members, and a few of the advertisers alike at the "After Christmas - Pre New Years" party that we had at the house on Friday night. Thank you to everyone that came out to it and made it a memorable (or not so memorable..) night. I think most didn't get out of bed...
