Post power boat mag on speed channel who saw it?

OK, Ship Shape was a rerun for us.
PBoating wasn't... or I slept through it when it aired initially.
Before I post my opinion, who saw the yellow Velocity #54 damn near verticle in 2 footers! Well they called it big water...

Man what footage.

I am sure the Steve Step guys were drooling, he was shown too.

So who saw it and thoughts!

Yep, velocity's are fast, no question about it? faster than me i will admit for the equal 26'....

But will you spill your beverage?

yep, here we go again... it is winter ya know, I haven't splashed the boat in two weeks!
You guys might be faster, but I demand and receive respect!

Gosh, I hope I didn't upset anyone....
I think thin skin comes with cold weather.

maybe we should talk about more dumb **** stuff, blonde jokes, Nick Slicks Monday, a guy taking a crap and throwing up etc...

This is a BOAT BB....

Too Old, I agree, I too own a Velocity 280, and I bought for it's SPEED and looks, which suits me fine. To each his own.

I saw the yellow Velocity, it looked good cutting through the water. I think they said they run 9 hrs aday. I wonder how many hours they get on a motor befor it needs a rebuild or replaced???

It looked like they had a dozen boats out at once, it would be a neat job. Curious rto what they are paid too.

I wonder what other hulls they test too.
The report said they use many factory hulls, Vee, steps, Cats etc...
