80 MPH upside down in a truck? You know Cuda ehhh??

Glad to hear you're OK. Heard some nice things about your boat from the LN crowd...

My experience with my 41 has been that the fuel does not make a huge difference, lucky to see 1-2 mph between full and empty. Since doing all the testing I also keep my tanks full.

Can any of you Lake Norman people tell me anything about a 1997 Velocity 32 that use to be on Lake Norman. I had custom paint and motors.

Thanks,

Padraig, the 32' you are referring to was owned by a friend and it was a very nice boat. It had new interior and new custom paint and new power. I believe they were 525hp crate motors and the price was very cheap. I looked at the boat and thought about buying it for resale. Very nice boat in very good shape

Street, thanks for the reply and I am glad you are ok and the Velocity is not badly damaged. Could you have your friend with the 32 contact me? Not trying to beat out the broker but Big Thunder doesn't seem to know much about the motors.
