    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.

    Now is the right time for a little Spring cleaning to squeeze more performance out of your vessel before the season begins in earnest.

    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.

We're happy to announce that the boats has reached completion and he's working through some of the shake down testing getting the boat ready for the upcoming poker run season.

    The addition of the Mercury Racing 1350 power has left to some minor tuning of the water pressure system due to the boats increased ...

    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".

    Nowhere else in the country do we see roughly a ten block stretch

    This year's Miami Boat Show introduced Powerboat Nation to many new friends and one of them was a sign maker. Not just any sign maker but a very cool one, CNC Illuminations.

    These guys made us a sign on site that is incredible. Their CNC machine cut our logo into the sign and then they attached the hanging strip with the light embedded underneath it. The coolest part is all the signs come with a remote control to where you can

    I think for about the last year I have had numerous phone calls from Devin Wozencraft of Wozencraft Insurance about which new boat would be the best for him to buy. After going from here to there, in the end he came back around to where he started and I am very happy for him.

    Devin Wozencraft is a boater, and not a new one, he
