it was B O R I N G. The "go fast" section lasted maybe 4 minutes.

The blow boaters got much more coverage..

I fell asleep during the blow boat stuff. It sounds like I didn't miss much.

And, cigarette style boats can reach speeds up to 90mph+? Plus, they talked about the 500EFI as being the biggest motor in the Mercury Racing offerings??? What happened to the 575SCi, the 900SC and other powerplants???

Plus, I think they spent way too much time on the history of yachting as it developed in the Netherlands and spread around the world. Then they went on and on about blowboats and the new designs. What a letdown.

What a big DISAPPOINTMENT!! 2+ minutes of go fasts? Oh yea I'd like to buy one of those 220,000 Cigarette Top Guns. What dealer do I call!!!! I did learn a couple of new things though.

Hey maybe some of you bigboys should make your own special. I am sure that Tim Allen would be happy to participate in that venture. He LOVES anything with BIG horsepower and BIG sound.Just a thought!!!

Yep - A little sad compared to what we were all expecting. The short section on Feadship yachts was pretty cool, though. If you ever get a chance to go onboard one of those floating jewels - DO IT. The workmanship and rigging are flawless.
