Seriously... why put this in articles, ad's, or use in a conversation? We all know that powerboaters ONLY report the absolute fastest, least amount of fuel, coldest day, dropped out of a plane, downhill run their boat has EVER seen....and probably add a few just in case. Does anyone else laugh at this?

Can someone give us the numeric conversion to +?

That's the mathematical magic of "+". It allows the boats owner to plausibly "embellish", while sitting at the bar or over a few at the docks and be able to justify it. "Hey, the test said 87+, but I was able to get 91 out of it..."
