Beginning with the Wednesday evening Shootout on the Strip—the huge boat display on Bagnell Dam Strip in Lake Ozarks, Mo., that is part of the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout—the team at Wake Effects, the local MTI dealer, has been running full-steam ahead, and will continue through the weekend.
There was an obvious sense of excitement amongst Randy Scism, the owner and founder of MTI in Wentzville, Mo., and Tim Gallagher, the company’s sales and marketing manager, at the docks of one MTI’s best customers when we were standing next to the very first 340X catamaran. And for good reason.
On Sunday August 7th, 2016, the Great Lakes Grand Prix in Michigan City was held at Washington Park Beach, and participants included Marine Technology Inc.!
The 03 Wake Effects Catamaran proved, once again, exactly what it is capable of—an impressive win. In Michigan City, 03 Wake Effects was neck and neck with their competition, but drivers Rusty Rahm and Jeff Harris were able to dominate the race and take home first place!
When Team CRC ran over the back of the #03 CMS MTI Catamaran during the 2015 Super Boat International Key West World Championship races, the team knew some major repairs had to be done before the boat could hit the course once again.
Like anyone who jumps into the cockpit of an offshore raceboat for the first time—let alone a 48-foot catamaran with twin 1,650-hp engines—the experience was quite eye-opening for Rusty Rahm, who owns Wake Effects in Osage Beach, Mo.
