However, get that baby to 40 or 50 MPH and I'm drawing half as much (or even less)! And the wake is much less going faster... Go figure....

25 MPH, I would love to have just that in the barge canal or Sykes creek.!

Strip,
I think you meant to say, "I glad we DON'T have Manatees here" And actually, Manatees are beginning to migrate up to Ft. Walton Beach now!! Their antural range is being screwed up by all the warm water discharges from power plants, and SEWAGE treatment plants that discharge in Manatee inhabited waters.
Good forbid, if one of them gets hit by a barge/tug.!
