Nice Video!

But my next comment may not be liked


I was not impressed with it at 7:09-7:14

I am very unhappy that such a boat would run so close to non-powered boat.

Worse thing, it 'looks' like the side reads OFFSHOREONLY.com?
My monitor here at work is a little dark and I do not have video software to pull out hte single snapshots.
Colors are different then the current OSO boat, but it really does not matter WHO'S boat it is, it is publicity that we shuold not be advertising.

Not sure what the rules are out there, but running that close at that speed to a sail boat is BAD publicity for our sport!!

Everyone may not like my thuoghts, but think outload at the real world! Would YOU want a boat running that fast next you your kids out on ANY boat!

Sorry, a lot of confidence has been lost here.

O am sure many want to edit my post /or delete it. I am fine with that, just as long as you also edit /or delete out that section of the video for the publice eyes.

Don't worry about the Indians, I would worry about the Village People coming.

Please allow me to comment. You were not there so you have no idea the sea conditions nor the number of boats that were to my starboard side, not to mention the very low flying helicopter, and the shallow water on the other side of the sailboat. Sorry but if a sailboat has to tack across a main channel then a captain will have to make a decision.

I am not sure how many poker runs you have attended but the cross wakes when mixed with step bottom boats can cause a change in direction with a moments notice. Mix that in with some unpredicatble water. To date I have never been reported to the Coast Guard for unsafe operation.

And pulling back on the throttle would have got me run over by the boat behind me in those conditions.
