Talked to some friends that were watching you guys hang back waiting for the lead boat to get going , he said the rest of boats must of been two miles ahead when you guys took off and were in the lead in 2 minutes.......... I believe this is you guys going out

The correct answer here is 55' MTi. I am as biased as anybody but I bet atleast 60% of those who answered would change their opinion after a ride in one.

That's a nice boat but it was never able to hang with this one when it got rough.

Glad you enjoyed the ride Bill.

Terry, a little different boat today. The 46 is staying in Ohio. The 40 is still in FL. No power changes this year. Next year.

I am biased but in the 46 and under class, SKATER.

length and strength always make a better ride.
