Sydwayz,
you know I love ya man, but you might want to do a little research before you call someone an idiot. Jon Fuller, very well know in the UK, is a professional and has been in the performance boat game for many years. Your title to the thread had a rather negative slant.

I gotta tell ya, I loved the video and the music. It looked like you guys had a lot of fun making it.

Good entertainment in the cold winter months for sure!

Bring it back!!!!

Happy New Year guys
Kurt

I see your point.

Once again, I saw it fit to remove the bashing as I saw it; and I did so. That is and was my choice.

Please alert OSO Management to clean up the thread and restore it if you feel its necessary. Please also feel free to post whatever else you see fit, including other videos and explanations here on this thread, if not done so already. Its not my thread; and I can't delete it.

Biggus,

Here is the video all the commotion is about:

When Steve Baker (phantom boats UK) retired, it was the end of an era really, very sad indeed, he built some great boats, and has countless offshore and OCR race & championship wins to his company name.
I'm very proud to own one of the last real phantoms (there are loads of crap illegal splashes out there) and consider him (steve B) to be friend also.

cheers JF

Like I posted on the insurance thread the other day.....the guys knows water...some of the idiots on here that posted do not know what they are talking about..the guy is constantly keeping the boat hooked up in water and feathering the drives...even the 2 small little leaps he took..you can see that he sets the boat prior to drives leaving water...sets it for better landing...when he comes in close to the boat he has applied drive pressure feathering and kept it going away from boat...to insure no cross waters on top can get him....all proper feathering while jamming.....something many of the glass house idiots do not know....also he did have a pfd on...it was the kind you pull the tab or when it gets wet it blows up..so that comment was wrong also..and he did know the peeps in boat....so what is the big deal......The guy knows water.....his vid was good....why don't you guys pick on some of the big boys around here!!!..No balls...not one of you...good day!
