Default Faster go faster

faster go faster. have you ever heard that before? i hate that.
my brother in law came into town on the 4th. he always goes to smoke on the water with me. this year being cancelled our plains were changed. he asked if i would take 2 of his buddys out for the day with us. as soon as we got in lake michigan all i hear is faster faster. we put on about 55 miles thru the day. all around 3500-4000rpm's. all day faster won't this go any faster. the last 5 miles or so i set the drives flat and the tabs up and i put sum logs in the fire (wot). we get back to the channel his buddys ask why would you go so fast in those big wave's (3' footers) man i hate that.

I hate back-seat drivers and make it a point to never have them on my boat again. Hopefully you made the best of the situation and still had fun.

Hi BM. Maybe one of these days we can get to Z's for a burger. We hope to be on the water soon so maybe we can get together at Docker's.
We haven't done any boating because of my recent knee problems which led to another surgery last Friday.
