Yes Mike that is my Glasstream. I am on the 3rd season now. I use to run my Spectre on the Jamming on the James, but the Glasstream is more comfortable with all the friends that go with me now. I had 7 on board at the start last year and 10 riding back after some friends broke down. This will be the 3rd Jammin for the Glasstream. I run WFO for the first 60 miles or so and still have a quarter tank of fuel left when we get back. It has been averaging 2.2 mpg here lately even with my heavy handed throttle control. No issues so far 5yr warrantys. Thanks for the comment.

You will save 130lbs per engine going with the Opti's.
