She said to my sister, "The boat is really lound and customers are complaining. How long are you going to be here." My sister says; "We're going to be here the whole season.".....

Later that day I come back from our test run and one of the needle/seats on my carb is hanging up and dumping fuel into the motor and I could barely keep it running... Idle for a second, take it out of gear, rev it and hold at 2500 for a second, then dump it in gear to get back into my slip....

Fast forward a few hours and I'm hanging out with some friends at the bar in the marina. One of the boat owners walks up to me, hammered, and says; "Ya know, everyone at the marina has to listen to your engines every time you rev them up." I had a few in me and said to the guy; "Hey buddy, it's a marina with a lot of other performance boats, you're just gonna have to deal with it." Guy was pissed off and walked away, never bothered me again....
FUC....................AH that's what i'm talking about. I'm only upset about my girl,the rest of the chit Bothered me for a second then I realized,I honestly do not give a fuc.....what any of them think!!!!!!!!!!!NEDDLE/SEAT they do not even know what that is,try not to confuse them,I had to scratch up my fresh blue-clear paint on the dominators, had one stick that saturday for a few minutes on the way in 2 pc.........I honestly got tired of opening the hatches due 2 people asking me 2,so I left them up for awhile,it is amazing how people try to flip it around,I'm honestly only worried about impressing my girl and kids,oh amd me,if u will notice I have talked more in the last 2 days than the whole time I've been a member-since03.
Thanks again,come make some noise with us!!!!!!

Before you go stereotyping the whole board, I would suggest you take a minute to get to know the people face to face.

Travis Reed / "White Lightening" - Your boat is a cool 95-98mph boat. Everyone knows the original owner spent fortune to build it and anyone would be lucky to own it. I enjoy seeing and evening listening to your boat run, but you don't have to shove it down the throats of LOTO boaters by driving around with your hatches up, rapping on the throttles when some drunk jackazz with beeds asks you to and claiming on an internet board that your boat will run 122mph. You have a great boat and everyone already knows it.....you have no need to prove it. Your efforts to justify the "coolness" of your boat really does nothing more than give powerboaters a bad name. Regarding the comments towards your wife, you have every right to be mad. I've kicked a few teeth in for less. It was disrespectful to you, your wife and your family. On behalf of the non-douche bag members of MWBP.com, I apologize. All in all, I think you have a cool boat and seem to probably be a pretty cool guy.......you may just want to tone it down a bit though. No disrespect intended........then again, with a name like Cat Huntin', you've got to expect a little bit of controversy. Good luck.

Well said.
I too am an member of MWBP. met a lot of great people too.

Sorry if I offended you buy asking for "pics of the chick in the bikini" Not my intention at all to disrespect your wife. I tend to like to look at pictures of hot women just as much as I do hot boats. No doubt your boat is cool, and I doubt anyone could argue with that fact.

Some over there would only be happy when they are the only boat on the lake. You have to wonder about a boating site that rates its members by their alcohol usage.
I know of one on there telling nothing but the TRUTH about the boat.

Wow, I know Travis Reed (White Lightning)

I grew up with him, I do not want to put his business in the street, but a few midwest boat party guys are all wrong. He is self made and was a special forces guy I believe; very quit and would and has help anyone and everyone. The quoet about trying to impress and that he has no balls by the fake edock36guy is so boguss, I commend him for not flying up and down the lake. This guy in one of the baddest and craziest out there but with great respect for others, I will close by saying this.... If he has not changed wich I dout very much he would never start any trouble or try to impress anyone, but since you guys kept making **** up and that comment about his wife WOW I truly would not want to be one of you guys, HE WILL NOT QUIT ON THIS NO MATTER WHAT.

Here is one last think I know about him wich would probley get me in trouble, he is a very private donator to kids charities
