Tank,

BADASS!!!!!

I want one like that of my 36 to hang on the wall. If you need a big pic of that made, let me know and ill hook you up. We have large format proofers that would make a nice panoramic of that for the wall.

As I referred to my shot like that:
"Significant APF"

You have a significant amount of silent time in the air for Ass Pucker Factor to engage, and you can think about how the landing is going to take place for a little longer than you would like to think about such.

At that point, having a trailer hitch ball mounted on the bottom of your seat comes in handy for holding you in the boat. I think they only install them in Fountains and Activators though.


Awesome shot Tank!

Thanks you guys. The shot is actually pulled from HD video that Chris (Shweeng) is putting together with 24 other boats that ran that day. I can gaurantee every boat on the video will be airing it out. The water was fairly big to be running directly into it. When Chris is done with it it's going to be a sick video edited w/music and running.

I haven't seen the video yet but when we took off I had the drives and tabs down and the boat was going bow down. I wanted to get some good air for the video so I brought it up a bit but in that water running 60+ it's kind've a biotch to get it right. We hit one swell launched, went down the back of another and ramped right into this. And yes, we came down pretty hard. But nothing to be concerned about. It's a Cig baby! It's all good, I got the money shot I wanted.

Don't show that photo to the people that put the decals on, they won't do any more work on your boat.
