Obviously you guys know nothing about hydrodynamics, it is not only possible but highly probable, I'm gonna pick this one up and do some cat killing and maybe kill a couple of fountains just for sport.

The Broker is in Stuart Florida, the boat is in Detroit Michigan.

How the hell did we get blamed for this one ????

Why is a ford exec running a boat with GM Motors???? doesn't have any faith in his own product?

Why would a Florida Broker selling a Detroit boat quote KPH ?
I do agree with your last point.

That'd be my guess to. If the Canadian coast guard timed it it would be in Kilometers per hour. There on the metric system . . atleast they were the last time i was up there on a ten day weekend



72 mph sounds just about right for that tank
