thats why he has the throttles on the left so when he is passenger he can chop the sticks quick from the rookie driver.

I agree, something like this could go on forever. Most boats are fine no matter what the bottom is. It comes down to the driver and water conditions.

Heavy boats good in rough. Steps run flatter, faster, and with less HP than straights. Steps can spin out if you forget she's flying. And boats are cool.
Yep.... everybody pretty much on the same page.
Actually experiences may vary.
Ditto....

Yeah... I knew I was screwed the minute I pushed submit reply.

But in all fairness... that pic is very small and I've never seen your boat up close because you never invited me out on it.... unlike... say.... Scott.
I think this is where I say "ahem."

Arrow Re: Stepped Hull Vs Straight Hull

Usually markets respond to customer "wants".

I see a group of potential customers "wanting"

-2006 38TG Straight hull...perhaps Kevlar

-2006 42'Fountain EX straight hull/pad

-2006 46' Apache' Straight hull

-2006 38' Scarab Straight Hull


....at least one compnay ought step up to the plate and make it available..I think it would sell.

Correct me but I don't think Apache steps any of their boats?

Actually, I did invite you along for one of the LEOPA Poker Runs last spring, my friend. If I remember correctly, you had to "raise funds" and couldn't go that day. Ms Patriyacht was very disappointed.

Also offered to meet you at Brenner to help launch and retrieve your boat one weekend last summer.

And I suggested a cure for a trim pump problem you were having when you first joined the website, and you still owe the beer you promised for that.

So, Ahem ...

But hopefully we will actually be able to meet up this year!
