Default "Loud, Fast and Politically Incorrect" WSJ today!!

Yep, seems the WSJ has sided with the sailors. Lots of incorrect facts in the article. On powerboat racing..."The sport made its way to the U.S. in 1973", Ha Ha!, some good photos though.

Generally a negative tone to it, too bad.

If you are a subscriber, it is on the front page of the weekend edition. If not, go grab a copy of the newspaper.

All and all, I thought the article was fairly balanced and mostly accurate. This comment was funny!

" the biggest boats, the pretiest girls, and drivers wearing so much gold theyd sink if the fell off"

"fountain powerboats... which accounts for about half of the cigarette boat market"

I love the "create giant wakes" comment, as well as the "conservationists are convinced that cigarette boats are fueling the increase. (of manatee deaths)" Whew, glad that deep draft luxo barges and all other performance boats are not responsible!
