Saw it on FB, Trifecta with 300’s beating an Avalon with 400’s. Reminds me of a UTV race I saw once.
The title is messed up.... you used the word "RACE", 2 guys running across the lake in pontoons W.O.T. is not a race... it's not even a wallet race... you could spend 1/2 the money and go twice as fast

That's why you need the p
Jackplates Johnson. It would let you drop the engines a bit for the whole shot and bring them up as soon as it rolls over.

You don’t have a toon. You have a party barge. You get set up a band on the front of the boat.. 😂
True. But isn't that what they all are??

Party barge racing. 😎

But hey, it's boating content. Gotta love it.

👍👍👍

So ya got William draining his coolers and throwing people overboard to shed weight.. lol. Then he jumps the start at an angle so I have to turn coming on plane..

Same guy same results.. lol
So folks are racing toons? Had to happen I guess...... boatless at moment so could be envy a bit.

I’m not sweatin it.. A I had to turn when we were comin on plane which is one of those boat lengths.. B I was creepin back.. I lost a little because the motors are too high now. We will be adjusting and going again soon. 🤪
When you first started with the height thing, I mentioned what happens when I try and turn with the engine trimmed out. The prop blows out Instantly, I have to trim ALL the way back in to turn...

Guess it's the same with dual OB's? I would guess it would be even worse with duals. :(

Going out on a limb here so owners will have to correct me
Dave's toon is 27' with 27" tubes and might have the heavier wood deck and comes in at 5000#
Wmc's trifecta sport is 25" tubes with a composite deck and all models come in about 3150#
No mind is 27 tubes. 30 over all
