Thumbs up Xtreme Marine

I just have to say something about Larry Goldman and Xtreme marine. We recently went down to Florida for the Miami show and to watch the poker run. We stopped by Larry's shop like we have for the past couple of years and inquired info on Motions. Since Larry knew we were interested he showed us everything on the new models coming out. They are going to be very incredible. He was very busy getting his customers ready for the poker run, but took time to talk with us about Motion's. We have never been on one so Larry said to stop by his shop Friday morning and he would arrange a ride on the Incredible Motion, the owner Manny Romans boat, which was going to be in the run. It turned out Manny was running late, so the ride wasn't going to happen. Larry in return got me on the 40 Skater Scaredy Cat owned by Kenny Dean for the Poker Run. What a ride!! The fastest I've gone in a boat. We'll on the way to Gilberts we blew a motor. We did manage to get up on plane with one motor and run 40mph. When we got to Gilberts Larry had volunteered to change a blower belt on American Muscle 2 with 1075's. Larry jumped on to Scaredy Cat and got us to a launching ramp(helped his customer). Then Larry, my Dad and I helped a bit, changed the blower belt on the 46 Cig (not one of his customers). All the boats were gone and Tony took off with his crew down to Islamorada. Larry said they could go and he would run the boat down. Larry is the only one I've seen who owns a performance shop actually jump in and get his hands dirty and really knows his stuff. It was quite a job by Merc's design; you basically have to take the whole front of the motor off. When we were done Larry offered to take me on the ride down to Holiday Isle. How could I pass that up! In the end we arrived at Holiday Isle right before dark. The next morning Larry called Manny and told him to take us for a ride in a Motion, but Manny never showed up and Larry had to go run a 44 MTI. So that’s my weekend story. I would like to thank Larry Goldman for getting on these awesome machines and applaud him for assisting Tony in the Cig. Also thanks to Kenny Dean owner of Scaredy Cat. Boy that boat can fly. It's a ride I will never forget. I hope to do future business with Larry and his crew at Xtreme Marine.

He's running big Cobras, I think 1100's. I'm not quite sure on the power though.

Larry showed me the pictures of the new Motion at the Miami show. Drawings and pictures of hull number 1 in production. Looks nice. Similar to to the MTI's and the new OL cat in appearance. Nothing like the old Motions.

We were up there to help the boat get on plane. You must have been in the Cig Top Fish by it was one of the only boats that went by us. It's a big deck up there and I did have my life jacket on.
