That isn't a Davis hull, he built it years back and Don set it during the last overhaul, heck I dont claim my boat as a Davis hull and it was built in his shop. Jose, is the engine on that fine looking boat the one that was destined for the Chevy II? Seems like you made a great choice! Hope to ride wth y'all soon!

Really sharp looking Benny Webb. One thing I have learned as a powerboat offshore racer is that someone is always faster than you at any given day. I saw the video at Derricks shop yesterday; and he told me that the guy with the Benny Webb took the defeat well. That is true sportsmanship in my book!

Hey HELMS when are u coming down south?? For someone running there mouth so much about the guys from the south many people dont know of u down here. This is A/c country down here. We only allow a few car motor boats and thats jose and simple man. If u decide to come down one day be prepared to have your ass handed to you!!! :thumbleft:

I love how u C/M guys complain about your so called 'heavy' sleds with a half of grass rake on them with over three times the hp and prop that us a/c guys wish we could spin is no comparison for a fiberglass boat hopefully pushing 300hp and thats on a good day. Thats all u hear is how uneven it is at race day and i call bs!! if anything yall have the advantage with all that hp. Power to weight ratio yall should be kicking are ass and its not happening. All im saying is if u pull it out there on the track theres no excuses its run want u brung! But when its over with i defiantly take u up on that beer :thumbleft:

Okay smokin joe that wasn't my boat that ran jose. Im not calling jose out or say anything bad about him or his boat, it was all related towards helms. But if u want some ill wax your boat to i just would hate have all my prop wash all over that pretty boat. Then me, you, and helms can sit back shake hands and have a beer together. How much horse power do those flames add?? at least 100 right/

dglover,you could buy 5 ls engines if you sold all those remote controlled cars,all your three and four wheelers and dont forget the super duper motorcycle you sent the motor to california to build and the super duper 1920 540 that has been totally updated to a 2013 california hot rod and the paramount with the brand new 300 xs optimax,and lets dont forget the big block ford engine you spent more on then from what state i dont remember but 700 horse ford to just sit in your air condition garage,i will trade my motor today for all that in a heart beat,lets not even mention all the artillary :lol: just get that 2013 540 put on that boat so all the ac guys can see what a high dollar 540 looks and runs like :thumbleft:
