My wife is pretty cool about my toys and going fast cause she loves it too.
We picked up my boat last November and got it wet this spring. On about our third time out, we went to a local lake in Carlyle IL thats about 1 mile wide/20 miles long and can get really snotty...
I was throttling the **** out of my boat in the slop to run 50mph trying to get a 30'+ cat with twins to play and he cruised next to us and then left us easily. My wife goes, "is that what your wanting to buy?". I replied, "that's exactly what I want." She goes, "wow that looks alot smoother than us getting beat up, go ahead and start looking for one."
