Are people having trouble understanding what is going on under a boat physically? Having an inside tab down during a turn is about the same as putting a set of training wheels on a motorcycle, running 60 MPH, and turning hard left and expecting it NOT to flip. Unload the rear of something that's supposed to be in the water, load a portion of the hull that shouldn't be in the water, and then effectively not allow a V-hull to lean into a turn, and I'm fairly sure that spells disaster at anything over idle speed. Let me go put the inside tab down on my Fountain and turn hard.... relatively sure I could flip that too.
Thanks, yea even the OL i was in felt pretty good around a turn, we made a wide turn around 90-100 and it felt pretty good there, and was set up correctly for it... but i guess for the not big water we were in, the boat being 45 feet didn't really impress me as compared to the 28 skater i was used to. if that makes sense. i felt many things from the water and it made the boat react more than it would have the skater. or does the water need to be a bit rougher for the bigger v to impress me more
i think i may just be comparing a cat to a V and they are just 2 completely different animals and the width of a cat also riding on air, and such just makes it feel a bit different
by the way, i think i saw your old boat at the 1000 islands poker run a few times would that have been you in it? around 2005 or previous?
Outerlimits (as well as MTI, Skater, Nortech, Cigarette, etc). are some of the best built-most expensive boats money can buy. They are stylish and impressive. People with money tend to buy the best. Many of the people that buy these boats have not had a boat of this caliber before. Remember, everyone is an amateur once. Most guys that can afford a million plus dollar boat and want to impress their friends are not going to buy a 50 mph boat.
Saying that Outerlimits intentionally markets to amateurs is a ridiculous statement.
I have never owned an Outerlimits BUT I have always been impressed with the way they take care and support their customers at the Poker runs. They do what more manufactures should do!
Thats like blaming a new LS7 Vette for being a dangerous vehicle
because some idiot tried to take a turn at 180mph and drives into a tree.
No matter how technically advanced any vehicle is (boat,car,bike,plane) there is always some idiot that can wreck it..
Yeah a 3cyl Yugo would probably be easier to drive (like the Baja example) but even then someone will find a way to wreck it.
Money can't buy talent or experience..
That has to be learned..
