In 2019, Nigel and Michael reset the world speed record for the 200-mile roundtrip across the Straits of Florida: • WPB/Freeport - 1hr 3min 43sec average speed 95.326mph (APBA & UIM World Record) • Freeport/WPB - 1hr 5min 36sec average speed 91.646mph (APBA Record) • Round Trip - 2hr 9min 9sec average speed 93.497 (APBA Record) Ocean Cup is sanctioned by the American Power Boat Association and the Union Internationale Motonautique.
Onboard with Nigel Hook and Jay Johnson during the 50th Anniversary of The Great Race - Trinidad to Tobago. Showing that they are competitors who will never, ever give up because even when down on power, wondering if they're at the back of the pack, with Tobago dead ahead, Nigel is saying [15:55]: "There's no throttle response at all, but we are pulling those guys in a little bit! [yep] Twenty miles to go ... come on seas build up!" #GreatRace #NigelHook #OceanCup
Proven off the track, the SilverHook® is available in two "Grand Touring" open cockpit racing models, with four or five seat versions. Also, designed by the Mannerfelt Design Team the GT models feature side pods / rubrails which are an option. They are designed specifically to stabilize which both increases the stability and improves the safety of V-bottoms for pleasure boaters. The side pods have always been part of Ocke's designs. We will build your SilverHook with or without the stabilizing side pods. Your choice!
