the majority of us involved with these boats have a general idea of what certain boats are capable of. the point trying to be made here is that it doesnt need to be stated, underlined, and bold faced for the WHOLE WORLD TO SEE...heres a point in case where the ole addage SOMETHINGS ARE BETTER OFF LEFT UNSAID applies !!! it doesnt make a difference who made the statement but the fact it was made knowing that the performance boating industry is under the microscope as it is. i'm a fan of all boats, cat, v, hydro, outboard, I/O, turbine etc...as well as all manufacturers.
