I think I just passed Cole_Skier on 95 between Searchlight & Cal-Nev-Ari. Wishing I was headed to Parker for the regatta instead of towards Vegas..

Those 250s are beautiful! Anyone remember that blown and injected Cole V drive? 22’? Think it may have been a member in the hotboat days and there was a video of it going through the channel. One of my favorite boats of all time.

Yeah, dad was having a blast. Had a stroke back in December so getting back on the water again, seeing a bunch of Coles and talking boats was great for him.

Ours is the Mini Cruiser. Only OB Mini Cruiser ever made, the others were V Drives. All of the modern bottoms (Superhawk, Nighthawk and SS) all started with this boat.

That’s great he’s doing much better, out and about enjoying his boat again with the family. I must have misunderstood.. So now I know it’s a mini cruiser. I have seen that boat rigged as a V drive before I believe.. Also it would be cool to meet up with you in Havasu one of these days.. Haven’t been up to Pirates or Topock yet and I’d like to follow someone first before making that venture

Was great meeting you and your family. We will definitely do this again. I learned a lot and made some notes to make bigger and better.

I remember the boat well!! I for the life of me can't remember his user name right now, but I definitely remember the boat. Open bow / hauled ass!

One of my favorite boats of all time was the Red Cole V-drive that was Twin Turbo called Russian Roulette. I really wanted to buy that boat when it was up for sale, but couldn't swing it.. :(

You talk about the blown injected family boat on u tube? I would bring it up but my phone won't let me. Names John. Won't give last name but his brother used to race a fuel hydro back in the day

I started a Cole Boat Owners Group on Facebook for those that want to join and stay in touch through out the year. Hopefully make is easier next year so getting people signed up and shirt orders a little easier to deal with. I made it a closed group to keep most of the idiots out.
