I've gotta be good to her! If I start to scare her, she'll never go again!
Congrats,, nice looking boat. You are also a smart man, because if the wife is happy, you will be happy.

That would be your revlimiter kicking in. Don't worry, they self adjust as the boat gets broken in.

Yes it is! The trailer still says "S Dutra" in large letters on the frame!

We have to figure that out still. I know we are going to spend some time at Grand. Everyone tells us how nice Skiatook is supposed to be as well, so we may try that also. It is a little closer to us than Grand. Any suggestions?

Hey Brian! Sorry I didn't get back to you after you sent me the PM back. I hope everything went well for you!

We didn't go to the shootout as we didn't get our boat in time, so we didn't see Brian and Mike. We will be there next year barring any unforseen circumstances though!

congrats... i ran with your boat a few yrs ago.
And yes... don't push it too hard w/ the wife on board.
Scared mine twice, once in a stuff, and once in big seas.
She never complained though, probably cuz she knew it'd be up for sale soon.

Good advice! My wife told me a few weeks ago that she wasn't riding in the boat anymore. My wife says she wants a cruiser or a bigger perf. boat.
