Mike Yowaiski...                     '89 Velocity

Here is a 1989 23' Velocity rigged with twin '93 Mercury 200 HP motors.  Once owned and raced by Art Lilly, it has the best of everything: Latham steering, low water pickups, race setup interior, Morse controls, and a full set of gauges including Gaffrig speedo and tach, all backed by gold bezels.  The boat features 36" k-plane trim tabs, and the hull is all reinforced with extra stringers with the transom having two stainless steel 2" support rods that bolt directly in front of the motors and run down to the stringers.  This makes for a very solid setup that will handle just about anything you can throw at it.  Owned by the Yowaiskis since '97, the boat runs close to 90 MPH with two stock Laser props.  The motors have racing lower units that counter-rotate inward for stern lift.  According to Mike, the boat is great to drive because at 50 MPH you can hit any wave you want as the tabs catch and you fly right over them, and then in calm water you can put the tabs up and it will fly like a Hydrostream with steering that is easy due to the hydraulics.  The boat is currently for sale.  For more information, e-mail Mike at mxmike878@hotmail.com.
