He blew right by a Water Patrol thats why I asked if they had special permission. ANd trust me Im not saying he was making a wake lol. I thought it was neat to get a private show off the back deck.

I am sure they did have a talk with the water patrol...I can't imagine going idle that long with that boat and its turbines...I am also sure they don't keep enough gas in it to make it back at idle. Towing it would be pretty dangerous and damaging also with the amount of and sizes of waves that particular weekend.

I couldn't imagine going 140 through the no wake zone with boats everywhere. Sounds pretty dangerous.

Isn't IDLE on a turbine 60% of full throttle.
Maybe 130 is IDLE

8:15ish not that it matters. The speed limit after sunset is 30mph.

Much like everyone has their own definition of "stock", everyone's boat has their own comfortable idle speed.. Jealousy will get you nowehere in life
