how can we tell the difference? all this time i thought our troops were fighting for freedom of speech religion etc, i guess thats all meaningless here on oso. if someone gets there feelings hurt that easily they should stay the hell away from the internet. free speech its what this country stands for, that is except for here on oso. if a thread gets a lil too hot for anyone dont visit the thread any more and get on with your life.The responses on the other thread were uncalled for here on OSO, hence I deleted my own thread. Please don't confuse me with OSO Management/Steve.

HMMMM gee I wonder why that is VIDEOS LIKE THESE BEING PUBLISHED ON THE NET FOR THE WORLD TO SEE......BTW that does include local authorities and townships, blue hairs, manatee fans, Coast Guard and YES underwriters. This is all eroding the FUN FACTOR out of the sport we love. We need to show the positives NOT the negatives of the sport
Dude, you need to calm down. I thought you were kidding on the wussie comment. I was pretty much done with this subject, but my feelings were not hurt in the least. Again, I deleted it because I felt the thread turned into crap and personal attacks; via others' posts. I have a pretty thick skin. You can tell by the annotation who deletes a thread. It was not OSO, it was me, and everyone can delete their own threads/posts.Originally Posted by ratman

Thanks, but I'll pass. I just hope the choice to live on a non-speed limit lake with a performance boat is still there with all of the irresponsible idiots out hell bent on f*cking it up for everybody. Just an opinion.Originally Posted by masher44
man you guys are getting fired up in here!
On the thread that got ditched, I said summat about 1 rule for one, and another rule for the other. sighting 200mph pleasure boats as extremely dangerous, but OK in your eyes coz they're cool.
Me, passing our camera boat 6 feet away at 71mph, is clearly dangerous and unacceptable to you lot, but in a thread posted tonight on OSO, there's talk of a 46 Skater that runs 223mph! lets say he regularly goes boating with 4 or 5 people on board. Are you seriously telling me that the life of those occupants isn't at a higher risk than the people in the making of my video?
it's OK to do 223mph coz it's cool, and you'd all like to!
Any insurance person who saw that boat pass, however far away it was, wouldn't EVER want to insure the occupants lives, would you?
so get off my case.
It wasn't even me who posted the video on your site!
BTW anyone who wants to see some vids, check out www.boatmad.com and go to 'multimedia' (or the forum)

My 28 runs 71mph with the diesels, driving through Bravo 1's
You can see the build and a few pics
