    Orange 35 Outlaw with BIG power. Not sure what tune he has now. It was the fastest Baja ever to run the Shootout.

    So what was the instruction from WP? Did WP just congratulate him or give him an ultimatum, like next "install mufflers or next time you get a ticket"...
    Not sure. There was a video of part of it on FB. WP looked pretty cool about it and he had a pic of the db meter reading. Didn't look like the test was done to exact standards either.

    The "loudest boat ever" was not given a ticket.

    They didn't get pulled over, they contacted WP on their own and requested the test be done.

    I didn't say "loudest boat ever" I said "it was is highest db reading he'd ever measured"

    I doubt he drove up to the WP in the middle of the lake at night to ask for a db test

    No, he called first, then they met him in the cove they were staying in.

    But the old 1977 law is still on the books. And technically, a brand new boat has to be able to pass both laws.

    The old law is 86db at 50 feet. (at any given time) In other words, you might pass running down the main channel at 40mph but fail the test running 70mph. Difference is you just get at ticket and be on your way.

    But if you fail the stationary test under the newest law, (post 1996) they give you a ticket, but.... future tickets can result in an order to dry dock the boat until corrected.
    thanks for the additional information.... hopefully that is the last I hear from them regardless....
