Travis, take this as you want as I have no dog in this fight.
first off you have a great boat, it is a one off, and has the ability to be a "great" offshore boat from its lineage..However here comes the criticism, Ed Cozzi is a friend of mine as well...You need to understand that not all of us are jealous of your boat or your life or your girlfriend/wife. I read and interpret your posts as if you dont like me then F you..to me that is the wrong attitude to bring to this or any forum, I assure you that ESPECIALLY on Loto, there are many great as well as better boats. I know anthony as well and what his cat and him are capable of, he bought a bare hull rigged and powered it himself, so his ability is there. if someone asks you to open the hatch and rev the motors, all you have to say is no, it would be inconsiderate in this area, if they truly are at loto most of the times they will hear the boat run at one point or another, so blaming it on them is a mute point.
One person is in control of your vessel and that is you, either accept the criticism, and be captain of your ship, or let the others rule and deal with the consequences. For the record I support loud pipes as my Tiger has mufflers, but is not quiet by any means and will defend it, but not shove it in peoples faces, I cant please everyone nor do I try to, but I am considerate...just my opinion
