She says, too much wind, not smooth enough, and too much flight time!

I wonder if my wife just scares easily, complains too much or what? Does your wife/GF's get scared when you lay into the sticks and air it out?

I can afford a bigger boat but I am happy where I am now. I guess I can probably ignore her for a few more seasons.
what are you waiting on man!!! you can do it.. you can do it right now...

So far, my wife has been trying really hard to go out as much as possible to understand the whole boating thing, but so far she just isn't getting it.

But I know she gets a bit nervous as we start to air it out a bit.
24 is a bit short at times.

The wind in the face will almost always be there with a standup HP boat.
Maybe a single screw 32 Sutphen would do the trick. One for sale on Boattrader.com or Yachtworld.com.

Would a Y2K be much different from the 24?

But you are lucky that she is into the boat.

I was running with a Tiger last weekend, and just had to pass him A friend of mine's wife in my backseat got a little uneasy, so when we stopped she told me to "DRIVE PRETTY" I have never heard it put like that before

I have a 530 Carver for sale if she wants comfort.

....or you could do like I did to get my Bullet. I kept taking my wife up to the chesapeake bay in our 223 Formula until she told me that we HAD to get a bigger boat!!

My wife is fine until I catch some air, then she turns into something out of Poltergeist. She has been better this year, but if I plan on catching air, I take those who enjoy it.
