Image of the Week: All Spooled Up, All Spooled Down

One thing you can always count on from the Desert Storm Poker Run is a bounty of high-horsepower hardware in a starkly beautiful setting. Despite that last week’s event in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., faced its share of challenges—from blistering heat on the poker run and street party days to postponement and eventual cancellation of the top-speed shootout—that held true once more this year. For proof positive, check out the Jeff Helmkamp photo below.

Slideshow of the Week: Nor-Tech’s New 450 Sport Presented by South Florida Performance Boats

Ask Bob Crow of South Florida Performance Boats in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., about the new Nor-Tech Hi-Performance Boats 450 Sport Center Console model, and he’ll explain why he believes it is one of the most versatile offerings he’s ever seen. Not only does the large 45-foot-long, 12-foot-wide model have the interest of performance boaters looking to get into a bigger center console or transition out of their go-fast V-bottom or cat, according to Crow, the boat is also gaining traction among customers who might normally be looking at an express cruise as well as yacht owners seeking an unparalleled tender.

Image of the Week: A Much Lower Altitude Mystic

When speedonthewater.com chief photographer Pete Boden of Shoot 2 Thrill Pix headed to New Smyrna Beach, Fla., to shoot the latest Mystic Powerboats M4200 luxury center console delivery, he came back with something unexpected—an image of the triple Mercury Marine Verado 350 outboard engine-powered 42-footer “catching air.” And that’s saying Boden has shot almost every Mystic M4200 produced in the last two years and has brought back nary an air shot.

Image of the Week: Perfect Pair

With a new movie called “Speed Kills” about the life and times of Cigarette Racing Team founder Don Aronow starring John Travolta and heading into production next month, this photo from speedonthewater.com chief photographer Pete Boden was an easy choice for our Image of the Week. Boden captured the image of two Cigarette sportboats—a 38’ Top Gun and a 36’ Gladiator—idling alongside one another during the Florida Powerboat Club’s recent Tampa Bay Poker Run.
