Less tab= less resistance= more speed. So lets see all you LOTO shootout boys bring a nice "Plus Size" girls out on your boat and hit some quality numbers. Come to think of it, has anyone seen under the bow of Reggies "Cat Killer"? I bet he's got a whole weight watchers convention from footrest to beak in that thing.

Your welcome!
now that was some funny chit... I can see it now, the "Cat Killer brought to you by Lil Debbie Snack Cakes"
