It is AWESOME!!!!!!!!! I am sure you will be totally hooked once you do! I would highly reccommend that if you need any advice contact Sean Stinson at Dick Simon Marine. Additionally, don't rush up to really high speeds until YOU are perfectly comfortable! It takes time to learn to run a boat fast especially when it get rough! Take your time and learn the boat and individual characteristics. Each boat handles differently, especially at speed. There is nothing wrong with finding some open area of calm water where no one is around and just try different things slowly and work your way up. You will be much better off in the long run! Good luck and say HI to Gina!
