Minds in Motion,
My friend is the only one I will ever ride with at that speed. He is scared to hell of his boat at that speed too. You'd be crazy not to. Mostly he's scared of turning. I think that is a good thing. It's probably more like extreme respect than fear, but both are good for self preservation.
A good friend of mine puts on a poker run in Canada and he brought his brother-in-law with him in his new 32' Velocity that does high 80's. They launched off a wave that wasn't extremely big but when they landed his brother-in-law broke his back. He called 911 and had to have him removed from the boat. Very sad.
I've ridden with this guy before and he is a good driver. He even took lessons from Velocity for a while to learn the boat.
I like my (hopefully) 70-75 mph Cafe Racer. Not too many worries about landing too hard and I'm driving.
I'll know for sure next year at the SCOPE poker run. Look out Pacific Ocean.
