UT, It was alot of work. It helped that I had Dustin and Bob Leach on my side. We had to spend a week in LA testing, 3 day's in fresno, and a lot of time at our local lakes just to get things right. To top it all of they lost the picures from the Elsinore test and we had to redo them in Havasu. My wife was OK since she wasn't to happy about the girls they had on the boat when they shot it in LA. She was much happier to have her and the kids in the boat for the mag.
I was a little disapointed that it wasn't in color but I guess they looked at my boat and said why waste the money .
Doing a mag. test is a very interesting thing, you learn a lot about how it really works and how much work it really is.

If I added all the time and money it took me to get my boat dialed in and in the Mag. I would have to sell it for about $50K more.

Cat&Mice - I know what you mean about the wife and Hot Boat's style. My wife wont even let me subscribe because of who the publisher is - I have to buy it at the newstand. Still, you have fullfilled a dream I'm sure we all have. If I send you my copy, will you sign it for me
