Used to be a 9 hour race back when men were men lol. Seriously though the flatty guys are hard core.

The gel on the eliminator looked alot like @HydroSkreamin boat.

Oh I know, I was there for a whole bunch of them in the 60's and 70's. We'd watch the start and about a couple hours worth then go out and ride our dirt bikes. Come back later in the day and watch what was left, not much. Lot's of attrition back then. Looked like lot's of dropouts today also in the first hour. What happened to Scarlata's deal??

It didn’t. Was there just to oogle over. I talked to Jerry Gilbreth who owns and built it (GMT) for a little bit. We worked together at Hawaiian and maybe Tahiti before that, can’t remember for sure, and he said it hauls ass. They were having some problems with the dash read outs but I think he said at ran over 120 on 60% throttle. He’s spent 3 yrs rigging/making parts for it.
It a was great to see him and he made my day by saying some great things about my dad as they were riggers together back at those shops.

Dat 312 boat hung in there tho.
Thanks for the shout out. We are still working on getting the speed back (motor fell off the boat last year, broken jack plate) and got the most out of the current set up. Need more testing time, should be stronger next year.

It didn't look like too many boats.
Anybody know where the stoker with Pxrthis finished?

We were breaking in a brand new motor for the first hour due to dealing with fire at home and then had the fuel tank come apart at the seam. Switched the fuel lines to the saddle tanks and threw an ear off the prop when we went back in. Spun the hub on the next prop so we called it a day. The Stoker with the late model Evinrude was hauling ass and it’s great to see more v drives finishing.

Adjust the rules again? What’s that mean?
I’d expect the question is rhetorical, but the answer is it is a handicapped race.

If one gets out too far ahead they typically adjust the handicaps..

Are they not changing the rules anymore?

I/O followed by a twin turbo v drive!

Depending on how far ahead they were they will adjust the rules again.
Both Nordic and Justified must have been very careful and carefully colored within the lines this year --- excellent.

A question --- That Lamborghini V-12 powered boat, which I'd sure love to hear run. How do they prevent water from the exhaust running back down into the cylinders after it's shut-off ? Do they have a switched solenoid or is it RPM controlled so it shuts off prior to shut-down ?

The water never dumps into the exhaust. They are jacketed but near the tips you can see on the bottom of the exhaust the water dumps into a stainless tube and then down a black hose on each header. The exhaust itself is dry.

(Looking at the pics anyways).

It is not a handicapped race. All boats start at the same time and boat with most laps wins over all. Pretty simple and fair racing. Much better than the handicap way it was run in the past where a 65 mph boat could win overall and a 110 mph boat that finishes the race gets screwed out of there rightful win. With handicaps it went from being an endurance race to being a joke. Now the fastest boats compete for an overall win while the rest of us are competing for a class victory. This lets everyone get out and be competitive in their class and have fun racing, while the fastest boat that finishes wins the King of the River. Just my 2 cents

Oh OK, I thought the upper tube was spraying water at the tip into the exhaust exiting the tip. Your routing scheme makes sense.

That Lamborghini Rayson Craft is really cool! I would have that that a guy that manufactured exhaust systems for a living would have done a cooler looking tail pipe set up then that.

Yea, i felt that exhaust left a lot to be desired as well. Really seemed like a half ass after thought, esp with a machine with so much style and engineering.
