Ask Brian a Question!
Quietly, understated working out of a meticulous shop near the Fort Lauderdale airport. Brian Jackson has earned a reputation for being the very best. When you ask the hard core enthusiasts and race teams where they go for drive work, the answer Offshore Outdrives. When I run in the 150-180 MPH range the person most trusted is the one guy at Offshore Outdrives. A lot of guys have the certificates and credentials just like Brian does, but he graduated at the head of the class and he is the one who works on the best.
Ask Jason a Question!
Jason Ventura has been in the high performance business for nearly 25 years. Prior to working at Outerlimits he built and raced drag cars and his own powerboats. Working at Outerlimits for 7 years Jason was responsible for the racing program in the US and Europe, Poker Run Team, and all customer service work. In 2007 Jason relocated to Fort Lauderdale and is the guy behind what is arguably the fastest and best high performance powerboat every built, Bill Pyburns, Pure Platinum 388 SKATER.
