I was in my 12ft boat with a '99 Honda 4-Stroke 8HP, and my friend was in 15ft with a '85 Johnson 2-Stroke 20HP and about 50lbs of xtra crap. We just got off work so we pulled up to a bridge to use as a starting line. Off the start i was raping him cuz i 'plain-out' in about 4 sec, and his takes a while. But after about 10 sec he started flying and passed me as he finally started plaining. In the end he was about 2 boat lengths ahead of me. It was a fun race, my first with boats, now i just have to race my uncles 205hp 18'6 with my 210hp 18'6. His is fucked though going at like 10-25 mph his boat is like at a 45 degree angle even with the trim down. My plains out fucking fast. So even though his is only 5hp less i think ill rape him.
