Hey ya'll!

Well, I might as well git it outta da way, and call it a "Blue Anchor". 'Cause I know da merc guys will. So, anyway, here goes.....

Allison XB2002
Evinrude 225 Vindicator (Stock)
13 1/2" x 27' 4-blade Renegade
Bob's low water & cone
1/4" below pad
Trollin' motor w/ 2 batteries(one of MY excuses!)
GPS: 83.8 @ 6300 (2-200lb riders)
92 @ 6700 (Solo)
80.3 @ 6200 (3 riders loaded w/ cooler,chairs,broom)
(never leave home without da BROOM!)
Have run a 14 1/4" x 29 SRX that was cut hard! No hole shot, and ran 10 mph slower at same RPM.

Well, I reckon dats enuff fer now. Go ahead, "Let da Bashin' Begin!!!"....LMAO!!!

I got the same motor - nice blue huh? But mine had some work.
I was surprise at the performance drop with the SRX. I have a Renegade too, but pitch is a whole lot less. We'll have to talk some.

Where did that sky high rooster tail come from? Or were you imitating the 12,000,000hp jet boat you just blew by..

dat wuz me blowin' da rooster tail...lol... I was waitin' on Gr8 XTB to catch up, so I could leave him behind again....lol... da 12,000,000hp jet boat was wayyy behind Gr8 XTB!!!

Actually, I wuz already trimmed to run, slowed down to wait on da video camera, and soon as he got next to me, nailed it! Bein's I was already trimmed to run, da tail shot out 'till she hooked up, and I wuz GONE!!!

Take a look at da whole thing....

I'm hoping that the added hp will allow me to swing the 28p Raker. I like the performance of them AND I have one!

But, I think that is a little too much. Did you have your Renegade re-worked? I didn't know they came that high in pitch.

"Blue By-U" not bad :). De only reason dem Merky boyz have braging rites is cause deres more of um. Got to do with dat ratio thingy. It's good to go against de odds and win :D. Come to think of it, I'z did the rope racing gig last year in da 9 sec class. Only one there. NO MERKYS!! Man can't wait till she's finished.

See ya at da races :cool:
