The worst part is that they had a big picture of BigCat's old Jokers Wild skater screaming past some kayaker in the river...........

We did the run and we only got flipped off once by 1 fishing boat on the whole run, I guess it was this guy who wrote the article.

Most of the waterfront home spectators were cheering us on and giving us the thumbs up for the cool boats and hot chics on board.

I guess we should have invited them to the FPC Party at Lollipops!

I am not sure if there are many wakeboard boats in FL but if they are concerned with wakes they should do something about those. They may only be 20' ft but they are designed and driven to create huge wakes, bigger than thr offshores I've seen

Tim Matthews, a wildlife commission agent, said a universal speed limit isn't fair because a bigger boat will produce a bigger wake at a slower speed.

Sounds like one officer knows what he's talking about. We should adopt him here at OSO and SPONSOR HIM to talk on our behalf. I'm in, I've got a little $$ and I'm a Fl. boater.

I'm STILL waiting for the first common sense/scientific based fact to surface involving the manatee restrictions forced on us by the SMC's threat to sue the Federal Government to which the government caved faster than Enron's stock.

"Well we think that maybe a deer might cross this Interstate highway, so let's reduce the speed to idle speed only"
