are you talking about Sean or John?? I barely fit in my bolster thanks to Sapporo.......
the money issue comes into play more in the offshore enviroment where the waves are pounding and the ability to haul ass in the stuff is more important. I know a couple of these guys will run hard in small boats in the swells but I gotta tell ya that "Jokers Wild" is unstoppable in 6 foot plus. He actually goes alot faster getting air under that thing!! He also was running with part of his prop missing.....Sean is hardcore!! Besides, if he breaks it Cruboss will fix it and you may also find Keith in there too!!!
