Around The Boat World Record

The Sarasota Ski-A-Rees are proud to present our world record setting 10-Man Around the Boat Boat-O

This act is inspired by and coached by 1999 show director Eugene Rose. The boat is a 1989 Mastercraft Pro-Star 190 powered by a 454cid Indmar engine modified to produce about 500HP. The boat was owned and driven by Andy Meng. 10 man record set in Southern Region Tournament driven by Andy Meng.

Is this the limit? NO! We have already done 13, but sorry, didn't get photos of it.

So you have to wonder - What about 14 or 16 men... or women?

Stay tuned, more to come.
