    Spring has sprung, following a long, hard Winter for most of us, and while winter still clings in some parts, it's grip is loosening. Time to start thinking about getting the boat in the water, or, if you’ve done your shakedown cruise, to get after those nagging little things that will grow bigger if left unattended.

    The west coast of Florida was packed full of power boating this last weekend and so right after leaving the Florida Powerboat Poker Run, Powerboat Nation made its way to Englewod Florida for the Port Charlotte Gran Prix to check in on the race action. We missed the first race but arrived just in time for the day's final with the SuperBoats.

    With over 30 boats the race pits were full and the beaches were lined with spectators. The raining weather held off throughout the day and conditions were

    Well Desert Storm that is. Back in early 2013 we got a sneak peak from Tom Orseno at possibly one of the nicest privately (Not built by the manufacturer) rigged Nordic boats we've ever seen. Tom's Company, Pro Marine located in Lake Havasu Arizona had set out on a mission to showcase what the real difference was or is in professional rigging. Armed with years of experience and a shelf full of nothing but the very best components this ...

    It is no doubt that as high performance boaters here at Powerboat Nation we have our ear to just above the waterline. So when we hear ripples about new engine development we're always excited. If you are a forum member then you may have heard about the development happening at Retter Engine Development. Retter is developing a turbo based marine engine offering based on the insanely popular LS based engine family.

    Back last year we covered the long daunting process that Rick Bowling had endured in the restoration of the famous "Gone Again" 37 Talon.

    Desert Storm is thundering down upon us as we are down to counting days to head out for the West Coast's premier event. The Desert Storm Poker Run has developed somewhat of a cult following as it draws nearly every aspect of the high performance marine industry in participants, vendors, and spectators to what is one culmination or peak known as the "Street Party".
