Holy $hit !!! Who got sleeper dave's pannies tied in a knot??? Dude, take a chill pill, just figure it into the cost of boating. The money you could save from the knowledge here on this forum, could end up saving you thousands in the future.

It's only $.86 a week, way cheaper than any magazine you could buy.

Now back to the topic. what's the story on the beaching? That looks like a LONG way to have gone w/o water underneath. And the drives are up. Was he trimming them up as he was slidding on the sand to get more distance?
That is a 2001 38' Lightning w/575's. I looked at that boat last year when it was for sale. That picture is somewhere between Destin, FL. and Orange Beach, AL. on the Intracoastal. More than likely the boat was running WOT (86-87mph) when it hit the sand bar

A lot of guys seem to have a problem with others making money - why give away what you can sell? There are other sites that give access to everything for free just bare in mind they do not hold a candle to OSO

Yep, kinda figured it had to be. But by looking at the surrounding elevation, I assumed the water was shallow way before the sand and the boat would have beached itself before even hitting the beach.

I don't think someone that won't pay $45 a year membership is exactly in the demographics the advertisers are trying to attact.
