Default Tonto Rush

Many of us small boat owners never really have the pleasure to experience the rush of a real powerboat. "Tonto" gave us that rush yesterday. Cruising at about 60-65mph @ 3500rpm, was like riding on glass in the 6 man bolster, twin 900hp 41' monster. You could hear a light whine from the blowers just over the exhaust. A slight trim on the drives and the throttles dropped to the floor, the 11,000 lb. beast was running just over 90mph on the Gaffrig Monster. Rooster shooting about 75 feet from the back of the boat. Still smooth as glass! As we backed off of the throttles, just over the exhaust, you could hear a cheer and see high fives from the other four bolsters. This is one machine, that has to draw a smile everytime you fire the engines.

Robert, your generousity never seems to amaze me, thanks for the ride!

The tribe has spoken.......

Mike,
Thanks for the complement. Haven't seen you out on the water lately, what's up?
