    Cool Screaming and Flying: Action 19 with TWIN Mercury V6 engines. What??

    Alright, who can identify the driver of this insane Action? I know at least some of you know who this is.
    This photo amazes me - I wouldn't have even thought mounting two V6s would be possible on that boat. I would imaging this setup would require a lot of ballast in the bow and it was probably a handful to drive. I'm also wondering if full throttle was even possible, and how fast it went.

    It may not be right, but it's still cool.

    Correction - it's a 17 Action. Thanks Andy
