More Race Boat shots

Post by Angry » Fri May 20, 2011 9:12 pm

We had the Barry Carn Memorial ski races in town last weekend.

Namesd after the skier who defied gravity & hit the bottom of the lake drowning in the mud the first year.

Each year boats from Vic & NSW meet halfway & ski race on the lake some of these things have twin turbo Big Block Chevies in em & are good for 100mph +

Skiers must be a bit :bonk: :bonk: :bonk: cop the whip in the ski rope of the first & last guy !!!

Takes me back to watching the Grafton Bridge to Bridge when I was a kid....Used to sit out on the arms of the old mans trawler parked in the river near the Harwood Bridge with boats like The Judge and Top Gun hauling past at 160 kph a few feet away....Got to give it to the skiers :applause: ....CRAAZZY :o :o

I still havn't heard anything more sexy than a 454 at full noise 8) 8) 8)

Now those 454's are all about 470 / 500cu in & most of em run twin turbos, but the blowers sound better......

One of my mates is an EFI guru & they put an EFI system on a 480cu in Rodeck/Chev about 10 yrs ago, with twin turbos it had 16 injectors !! , was a bridge to bridge boat , I only saw the motor, but I saw the Dyno needle pegged @ 1100hp !!!

Thnnx Ibbsy they were doing approx 60mph then accelerating up the front& back of the lake to 100mph+ especially the inboards the two pictured here could really accelerate.

Click on the pics & blow em up & check out the whip in the tow rope on the first & last pics !!
