That’s My old boat
I know. It’s still badass! This is the first time I’ve seen a real look at the fuel consumption on the 450s. Just brings reality back when you look at the CCs that has 3-4-5-6 of them bastards strapped to the back of them. The look is cool, the functionality is lost. Twin Yanmars might not be as fast, but at least you could go somewhere.

Boat is ready for SF Bay trip, gonna meet Rick Bowling & his crew @ Scots Seafood in Oakland Estuary for lunch. We can't run with him, he cruises 110-130 in his Talon. Maybe buzz out past the Gate before lunch if fog allows.

Spectacular day, left Benicia marina & ran out under Gate to the lighthouse a few miles out thru some 7-8' swells. Met some friends at Scotts seafood in Oakland Estuary for killer lunch. Shut down in San Pablo bay for refreshments then back to Benicia. INCREDIBLE day

A little 1350 Talon flyby. When he decided hed had enough of going slow and walks away from us towards the end we were probably doing close to 100. Great day on the Bay.
Great video and great pics!! I love that boat, I just wish there were more pics of the interior and info on it in general. I also believe you guys have the other canopied/half Talon running around the Delta?

Great job! Cant wait to make plans with you in the future.

There is a link on his website that documents some of the history of that boat. http://www.goneagainracing.com/ Its quite a machine. Although a "pleasure boat" now, its pretty much all business. I was lucky enough to go for a ride with Mr. and Mrs lake p.a.l last year. I have a couple from the back seat...cant see a whole lot though.

Been making trails in my creek bottom at my house...insanely beautiful and very challenging. We have created the ultimate crawling course for the quads!

The old Carver needs a bunch of TLC but has great "bones"
Compression tests came back great, bilge is bone dry, and it was a blast getting her from Alameda to BW Big thanks to SeaSickRick for letting us borrow his carpet steam cleaner to get the cockpit dialed in.
