    "Speed Trial" with a little girl on the lap of the passenger

    Have you ever seen such a thing? I came across this video on You Tube. Someone testing a Y2k with a little girl on the passenger's lap. Looks real safe...something I would never do?? If they weren't really testing, the video would not be called "Speed Trials"

    I guess that would depend on alot of things. Who is to say he hadn't had the boat for a while and was very used to it and just went up or down an inch in prop. Also, it doesn't sound like twins, so is 75 mph in a 30' boat all that wild? If he had stock power, like a 496 ho, that would be about WOT.

    I think there are just too many variables to criticize this guy as being reckless. If nothing else, who does top end speed runs in a 30'er with 4 people on board? Might not make much difference in a 42' MTI, but the Y2K is a little more succeptible to added weight.

    I've had my 6 year old in the boat at WOT several times and would NEVER put him in any danger. MY WOT is 71mph and is very stable at that speed. Of course, this was in calm water.

    If the guy was running a 100mph and the boat was loose, I would have to disagree with what he was doing. He looks completely in control and the boat looks stable.

    She's wearing a life vest, she's got the grab bar, and it looks like her Mom has her. It's probably the safest spot on the boat.
    I do agree that it is probably mis-titled though.

    Not to hyjack this thread, but people need to put windsocks on their microphones when doing these videos. We want to hear the engine(s), not wind noise.

    looks like driver has his life jacket on. Not a very good one but a jacket none the less.

    Doesn't look like they are going very fast. Looks pretty controlled.

    I believe it's when he took delivery of his Y2K Superboat. Probably should have called it 'Shakedown Cruise'.

    Looks like a tank top to me but anyway I didn't know kids shouldn't be on the boat.She didn't look like she hated it either.
