I don't think that speed on the water should be regulated by the government. We lose more and more "rights" all the time. If we want to go out on the water and do 100 mph thats our perogative, unless there are other boats or people nearby that can be effected, but even in that case thats when the marine police should step in and properly summons that individual. Hopefully anyone buying a boat that does 80 and over is smart enough and cautious enough to know when and when not to push it. The Insurance companies are out of control and I think that what most people fail to realize is that you can lose control and die doing 40 mphjust as easily as 120 mph.
