    If he is starting with a boat like that, 90+mph, already worried about more speed, I think there is a whole lot more ego than restraint. This is unfortunately going to be the next person asking for prayers on OSO. I just hope he doesn't hurt anyone else. Driving huge fishing boats counts about as much as driving a tractor trailer prepares you to run the Indy 500. Keep him off Lake Ontario please!
    I think we are giving him poor advice here, if he hasn't bought the boat yet and is concerned about power and drives, I think it is only fair to advise him what would be the proper boat and he won't need to upgrade hopefully in the near future.

    Give the guy a break!

    Ok, no one knows who this guy is, why is everyone passing judgement.

    If he buys a brand new OL, I am sure that Fiore is going to teach him how to drive the boat. My buddy got a brand new 42 with 1000's and Fiore took him out and test drove the boat with him and showed him how to handle the boat and set it up properly.

    Ok, so we may have to keep a distance from him at the poker run? I bet he will pick it up quickly, it's not rocket science!

    Good luck with the new boat!!

    You have no idea how right you are my man, I think you know my bosses type exactly...He asks for my advice, and if its not what he wants to hear then he asks again till I tell him what he wants to hear. This is purely an ego thing with him...You all know the type, always has to have the best of everything...

    A good example: A kid at work went out and bought a GSXR 750, my boss went out the next week and bought a GSXR 1000. Went from a Harley to a sportbike and now both sit in his garage. I think the GSXR might have 50 miles on it. He had never ridden a sportbike before and scared hisself to death andnow it will sit in his garage for about 2 years. I'm sure the boat will be the same deal....We found a 37' Stiletto at NM that he really like,just does'nt like the people. It is very hard to get info on a boat unless you calling to ask where to wire the money

    He wants to go with a 37' today but by tomorrow I'm sure he will be back to a 42'...Who are all the Outerlimits dealers? We have talked to NM , Ocean Performance(seem to be the best so far), and Trenton Marine( nice guys but seem to be priced real high)...Who is the best dealer to deal with as far as price and customer service and everything else???

    Thanks everyone

    Does anyone know if Scarab still offers a drving school? If he would go to something like this, he might enjoy his ride a lot more and be a lot safer. - Pages of boat related links

    Ditto what treadwell said , Chris Cestaro at Ocean Performance is a very knowledgable person to deal with regarding OL 's .Ocean performance would be your best bet. He will also be in Miami at the show.
