The weight on the boat full rigged with weight added on the bulkhead, 2 fuel pumps, vapour recovery system and 3 batteries was 790 lbs, hull weight with seat and steering is around 560.

Dennis you have nothing to fear, although you should come on up hear and go for a good sled ride.

Wayne Wayne Wayne, there is a reason Wally built you all those carbon parts.... burbon attached to your front half!

Does yellow signify your sceeeeered of the Barney boat?

Barnes....... just for you......... sorry I missed the last few hundred.

no, no, no, English for beginners:

F-U-L-L-Y as in complete with engine. I know what it weighed with the additional weight and all rigged for Mod Production before it was send to Canada. I want to know how heavy it is right now, since you mounted an engine on it.

Scared of a purple boat.....only a Canadian or a French guy would come to that conclusion, oui. My little 280 powered STV will run off and hide from that poiple Barney-mobile.

I'll tell you what, strap yourself into my DR-20 on Friday October 8th and see if you can make a complete pass. My money says no. I'll even set the trim, so all you will have to do is drive.

Good one Anthony!

p.s. - The Canadian remarks are just Jabs at Rob. Most of you guys are good people ( don't have much use for your Socialists though), what happened with RT?

Wayne, I will get your DR down to the end of the 1/4, BUT I cannot be certain on how much will be left for you to race on sat and sunday.

Jeeze Wayne even the driver in the picture is wearing yellow.... scared of everything...... specially Canadian beer and rye.

hey RT, you're getting personal.

watch the yellow comments, I have a yellow

river rocket too. Yellow is so there is no

mistaking what stv it is when it goes by.

Yellow could be coming to a lake near you

anyway, your boy Phil sure would like to

trade his Euro for my rr. I will say though

I have never matched my shirt to my boat.

I did have a friend once that bought a pair

of sneakers because he thought they would

match the colors of his spark plug wires on

his Harley once.

My name is Wayne......I have a boating problem. It is a true addiction. My nights are spent coming up with ways to go faster and quicker. My days are spent on working to make boat racing a bigger sport. I spend way too much on sparkplugs and even match my wardrobe to my boats.

Be warned: this is a contageous disease and has no know cure.

The only good thing is that I am (much) faster than RT.

What's the story on the kill switch?

WAYNE...RT...he is alright... biggrin.gif I am his photo reduction specialist...what an honour EH? tongue.gif

Anyway I got to get back into the STV game. This hydrostream thing is OK for family stuff....but no substition for an STV

OH yeah...I like yellow too (with Black) cool.gif

That kill switch doesn't work, it was in the boat when it was bought the boat has an offshore style in it, between the drivers legs.

Yeller is for SCAAAAAAAARRDY CATS. Red is for racing and purple is for the ladies.

Wayne, according to boaters anonymous realization is half the story, keeping the spending in check is the rest of it.

Anthony whats your fascination with the kill switch? I think you have been on the side lines for too long- your missing the point of the thread

Sidelines....??? What does that mean?

Paul I thought it was a fair question to ask about the kill switch....I assumed it was inactive...and wanted to know if it was a correct assumption? Otherwise I would find it odd to be running an STV with no tether?

Your right, the point of the Thread is about the Baddest Triad...awesome boat no question. I am very happy for Blake.

Looks like the pic Rob Posted with the inactive kill switch is in a red and white RR and not the purple and white. I found no offfence in that boat being part of this thread, that was about another boat....that's just the way threads go sometime...they get a little off track...if you want to bring it back on track...then by all means
