No bash intended or directed at anyone in particular, but I find it confusing that this has caused such a commotion here on the boards.
The boat in question did not deliver the speed it was supposed to. The owner, instead of letting it "ruin" his life, decided to upgrade and achieve more speed yet. It is an ongoing quest for most in this addicting hobby to gain more speed. How many times do we see boats delivered with moderate power, upgraded and "boosted" to deliver more speed. The owner in question took an unfortunate situation and turned it into positive accomplishment, IE. MORE SPEED.
Who knows, maybe he really doesn't have much more money tied up in it if he had commissioned it with the HP1000s and Sixes.
And to flame a person for spending money on this quest for MORE SPEED??? There are many boats out there with prices attached that are just ludicrous. IMO opinion he shouldn't have to justify to anyone the money spent on his boat (except maybe his wife, lol).
Again, I am not pointing a finger at anyone in particular, the other thread had many contributors, just seems strange to bash a guy for putting together a boat that delivers serious performance. Kinda like raining on ones parade. I can see the concern from those stating the manufacturer should be held accountable, but like Semper has stated, the owner is HAPPY.
I'm off my soapbox now.
