    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.

    BBLADES has programs in place that let you test and tweak your boats performance affordably. The right props and boat set-up can save you money in fuel, not to mention the embarrassment of being at the back of the pack.

    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 ...

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

    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
