Hahahaha. Let the SH!T talkin begin! Another killer thread from Frank. All I can say is there isnt enough information in that book to help Jeff beat me next year. Hahahaha!

Hey, heres a gooood story......
Jeff actually chased Johnboy down on Sunday on the way back to the marina. Johnboy waited til Jeff got just past him and then gave it hell. Jeff was probably 2 boats ahead of John (when John nailed it) and he stayed right there. John did not catch Jeff, and Jeff did not pull away from John. John was running a steady 71-72 MPH against the current, and that was top speed for both boats running against a VERY strong current and VERY flat water.

Now, our fearless leader could come on here and say "I wasnt wide open when I ran John, and I could have pulled away if I wanted to.", or he could say, " I gave it all I got and I couldnt pull away from Johnboy."

Lets see hows this plays out!!!!

You clearly haven't read the facts in the GD thread about them! They run WFO through 10 footers no problem, leaving 42 cigs, OL, etc in the dust!

EDIT: Who is Still making a non stepped hull?
