Default SKA Nationals video of 2 38 Fountains running; 350 yamaha vs 300 verado

Heres a video of Team High Risk and Team On the Brink headed back to the scales during ska Nationals.

On the Brink is a 2011 38 Fountain rigged with triple 350 Yamahas;
High Risk is a 2011 38 Fountain rigged with triple 300 Verados (Bobby Wades boat, aka FastDonzi)

Speeds varied from 65.5-68.5 mph.

I was running the triple 300 verado boat and we walked down On the Brink from behind. He stayed right on our heals until the conditions got a little calmer and he creeped back up on us; ultimately getting out front back inside the barrier islands. I believe he got some video of us that I'll post later. Great Times, nice weather, good sportsmanship, and incredible bite.

so you were on the boat that was filming and On the Brink was the white boat to port? Looks like you didnt need to work the throttle at all.

Correct. But, in the first portion of the video, the seas were not necessarily big, but quite confused coming from all directions and every so often a couple waves would stack up airing the boat out. I was not so much concerned with the engines barking a little, but the throttles were getting worked to prevent the boat from airing out. As we got closer to the coast, the conditions got calmer and more predictable.

Keep in mind we ran WOT pretty much the whole way, 85 miles out, 85 miles back.

At the shotgun start we were late and started in the middle of the pack, probably 60 boats back and a good 1/4-1/2 mile behind the first boats. We arrived at the spot 1/4 mile behind the first boat and were the 4th boat there. We ran 65-67 mph the whole way and no one ever passed us. We passed quite a few other manufacturers boats sporting trip 350's. The boat we are running with in the video arrived at the spot first and he had 2 fish on when we pulled up and we immediately had a triple hook up as soons as the lines hit the water. 2 hours later I counted over 100 boats fishing the same location.

the one lever is a great way to run fast offshore when its not flat. you have much more control and can work the throttles and keep the boat from barking a lot easier.

If the video was shot coming in then I assume both boats were sporting about a 1/2 tank of gas during the video. (190 miles round trip at WOT) Was the trip 350 boat much faster at the shot gun start. He did get there first. lol

We had 95% fuel at the start, (440 gallons), and probably had around 300 gallons on board when the video was shot. However, this may be hard to believe, but we ran the same speed on the way out as we did on the way back.

We didn't see the trip 350 38 Fountain at the shotgun start b/c we were late and didn't start at the front of the pack. I heard that he was the fastest boat and left the entire fleet in a hurry. He was likely running a few ticks faster than us.

So you were still 40+ miles offshore coming in when you shot the video. 140 gallons of gas running 200 miles wot would be a little unbelievable, not the speeds your running.

can i ask a general question about these tournaments? i dont really know much about these SKA tournies. do they really run WOT for the whole run out to the fishing grounds?

is that typical? i can understand some showmanship at the starts or running WOT to get back in time for a weigh in. but do they really run WOT for an entire 40-100 mile run out on a regular basis? how long were you guys running WOT and why? to make weigh in? i'm not criticizing, i just want to understand.

lord knows i am a speed freak.

The guys on the pro circuit probably run WOT more than the rest as they usually have sponsors that help pay for fuel and such. Also they usually have a level of merc sponsorship so they also get reduced cost of parts and service. So I am sure there are a few that run WOT all the time!

The way out was WOT for all 85 miles. The fish had been located and the big ones typically bite first. So, getting there first is key. The biggest fish we caught all day were the 3 that we hooked right when we pulled up to the spot. 2 hours later there were over 100 boats fishing in the area.

The WOT run on the way back was a combo of making it back to the scales and showmanship between the two boats. Plus, getting ahead in line for a weigh in of over 100 boats.

BTW, Some guys do not like to get passed........, myself included.

Joey, What I found in all tournament fishing is the every one runs wide open to there first spot, You want to be the first one there, more so in king fishing due to everyone knowing where the fish are. Not just you. But the ride back is different, If you think you got a good money fish early you will not push your time and have to run wot to get back in time, but if you think you need to fish to the limit of time because you don't think your there with what you got, your running wot all the way in.
