Like this shot of us in Destin.... we were North of 75 MPH flying it well... Gordo and I both had these two pics blew up and on the "boat pic's wall" in our houses.

Andy Smith, Matthew's uncle, bought that silver and red boat from Skip and I rode in it from Miami to KW the weekend of the poker run. It took 2-3" seas at 100 mph like it was nothing. I cannot desribe how cool the sound was of the Herings aerating as the boat left the water, confident in the knowledge the NxT drives were more than up to the task of handling that kind of running behind the 700's. In a word: awesome. Simply awesome.

I can second that.... I was in the boat on the LOTO run. Neill kept it in triple digits the whole way from Shooters 21 to Big Dicks. The cat guys were amazed! It's an awesome boat (as are all the Cigs! ).
