    101.7 mph Official World Record PWC

    Hello everyone, My name is Joey. I am the owner and pilot of the Turbo GPSHO that broke the world speed record this year at the hydrodrags. Me and my friend Manny, who many of you met this weekend, built, and tuned the ski ourselves. We normally keep a low profile, but felt it necessary to state the facts as there is a lot of misinformation circulating.

    We are not a shop, just a couple of ordinary guys that love this sport.


    There are several people that we would like to thank.


    Ramon from H2O Xtreme, built and designed the turbo kit and intake manifold.

    Mark Sheffield from Riva, a personal friend of Manny's who gave us advise, knowledge, and helped us with parts.

    Glenn Perry from Skat-Trak, for taking the time to help us with our pump and impeller needs.

    Glenn from R&D, who gave us advise, knowledge, and helped us with parts.

    Willie Figueroa from Miami, Fl. who is a personal friend and created the base tune from which we started our tuning process, and always picked up the phone to answer any questions we had while tuning.

    Randy Hourany, a personal friend who dedicated his time to help us achieve our goal.

    Most importantly; Crystal and Stefanie, our better halfs who put up with going to bed alone just about every night while we were in the garage working on the ski.



    A special thanks to Kerry Hibdon, his wife, Stan, and the rest of their team who supported us in the pits this weekend.

    We would like to congratulate the Puerto Rican team for setting the bar so high. They have held the record for years. Even with our accomplishment of breaking their long standing record, they gave us nothing but love and support. Ruben, the owner of the Puerto Rican 100.5 mph GP, personally called us to congratulate us afterwards. That meant a lot to us.

    Thanks to everyone who congratulated us at the event and everywhere we went while we were in Lakeland. It felt great to have the support of all of you. We wish we could remember all of your names. Thanks again!

    Congratulations to all of the competitors and winners. It takes a lot of time, money, dedication, blood, sweat, and tears just to get a ski ready to compete in an event like this. Let alone actually show up and put it down in front of the world.

    Mike Young and the entire Riva Hydrodrag team, Thank you!


    To the very few people who like to hate and talk smack after the fact; Everyone sees right through your BS.

    Below should be a video of our 101.7 mph pass. Judging from the video it looks like it only took roughly 500 feet to reach top speed. If anyone has other video of it, we would love to see it!
