Default Homesite's challenge race.

Everyone here is quick to put ratings on my boat on how slow it is. Here is the challenge:

I will race anyone from a dead stop from Hilsboro inlet to Boca inlet in S. Florida in one to two foot seas with me driving. Must be a center console boat with outboards.


There is the challange, no modifications to the challenge will be made.


After the race, I will buy at Houston's on the water!!

How about a WA....I won't win but could use a free meal. You didn't say I had to win....you didn't say anyone had to win. You just wanted to race....

You may want to modify your challenge....

I'll take that challenge! I think my 30 Scarab with twin 250s will smear you all over the water..........

.........well maybe not smear, but after I put sugar in your gas tank and pinch off the fuel line to two of your engines I should be able to keep up.

Ummmm.......I'll have the filet, medium rare, a loaded potatoe and a nice cold beer.

I would love to see him race that 32 YF with the 300 Opti's. You know that guys got that boat running right. I'm sure he has it tweaked to where its faster than the top speed of 82 it origianlly was.

I'd just like to request that you do this in 200' of water. Too many jackasses showing off their boats near (or inside) the dive buoys.

I'm also happy to take the challenge, I'll head north for a mile and then U-turn it back to houston's, we'll see who wins that!

Ok Homey I'll take your bet but you need to run with 3 Verado's tied behind your boat WHAT I'm just sayin' Hey I only have a 150 Verado on an 18 1/2 so that would make it a "fair" run won't it
