Current record - 17.027 secs. 52.9 mph David Hall, MAC 84 powered JAE.

E and F Hydro SAW of 96 and 95 mph set by Jerry Pettefer in 1995 where Andy Brown Jaguars, complete with full racing turnfin. Picco 67 and 80 power.

 

Andy Brown boats held the F Hydro SAW records continuously from 1988 (Mongoose/ Joe Ingrao) until 2017 when Martin Truex Jr and Mark Grim improved the record with their boats.

29 straight years. The record swapped around between Joe Ingrao, Jerry Pettefer, and myself many times and included all of my hull designs, Mongoose, Eagle, Jaguar, Eagle SG. My last F Hydro record stood for 16 years.

 

I believe it was 1987 when the manually timed records were retired and the electronic timing began. Doc Turner held the first electronic record in 1987 with his Twin Rossi 80 powered Coyote.

. It was around 1987. All records were whiped clean, Doc went and ran his heat race twin. I believe it was around 74 mph. I have that twin on a vhs tape at our old local pond.

Pretty sure I was the Records Director back then and was wondering who would be the first to break that magic 100 mph barrier.

 

IIRC Joe Ingrao was first, followed by Andy then Mike Nowicki with a 40 boat. :)

. Andy was first in impba. As for Joe , if he was still here, he would tell you he did what he did, giving full credit to Andy. What year did Mike run over 100?

I may be wrong but IIRC Joe was the first to break 100 with Andy's stuff. He flew up to Flint during this time running one of Andy's 40 boats ( Jaguar?) with a Picco 67 or 80 I believe. Andy will probably remember. They both did it in Hunstville.

 

Mike went 100+ sometime in the mid 90's with his own design and a K&B 7.5 IIRC. I'll see if he can chime in here...

The boat was a single Rossi 80 in a Coyote and I think you are right on the speed

 

Gene Taylor made the first passes. The guys said Doc you can go faster. So we started playing with props and set the record

 

On the Right to Left pass the boat was slow to get on the pipe, BUT it did and blew off the water just as it cleared the timing light. I had completed the Left to right and beat Genes time on that pass and then backed it up right to left

 

GREAT MEMORIES

. Terry, go to Andys website and you will see the plaque given to him for being the first in Impba to go over 100. Then Joe Ingrao and then John Finch. As far as going over 105, I was told I was #4 when I went 106.888 in Valdosta . A day after I did that , Eric Canto went over 105 with a speed of 106+ also making him number 5. Shortly after all that John Brown ran Andys SAW boat and joined the 110 club. I believe Don Ferrette was the next when he ran 108+. Jeff Lutz Edited by Jeff Lutz

Andy Brown was the first person in IMPBA to put together back to back runs over 100 MPH for an official record. That is why, as IMPBA President at the time, I had a special plaque made up to recognize this great accomplishment. It was given to him by the IMPBA Board of Directors. If you go to Andy's website you will see a picture of this plaque. Well deserved, I might add!

On morning of Feb 21, 1998 Joe Ingrao and I arrived at the Huntsville lake. Joe ran first and touched 100 mph on one pass with his CMB 100 powered 45 SG.

I ran three minutes later and made two back to back passes between 101 and 102 setting the D hydro record at 101.626 mph with a CMB 45 powered 21 SG.

Joe set the F hydro record in the high 90's that weekend.

These were the first ever IMPBA 100 mph passes.

 

The next year we returned to Huntsville. I bumped up Joe's F record. I forget the speed, but had a best pass of 117+

Joe had a best pass of 110+.

All executed with the infamous Ski jump and Slalom buoys.

 

A few months later, May 1999, I traveled to Legg lake and set the X hydro record at 111 mph with a best pass on the day of 119.8 mph.

I also set the .67 records at both of those events at about 105 mph.
