He arrives at the ramp and hits the 5 wheel motion with the trailer. He has to do it on level ground or else the trailer will slide into the water......it picks the azz of the truck off the ground when he "5 wheels" the trailer...

I didn't realize that you were pushing 98 now, I guess you are going to chase a triple digit number this year?

That's an awesome number for that size and age boat. Congrats.

I did have a detail job for you, but after that remark, I don't know....
Give me a shout and I'll tell you about it so you can see if you want it.


By the way, I did make your boat faster, but I can slow it right back down.

That is it on the speed. The drives are at their limit....at least with anything that we can come up with. It is gonna take whipples to bust 100mph. I could have a nice bass boat for what I have invested in the xr's with shorties and all the upgrades....props..etc etc.....and never could bust 100 even with 600CI motors. The 97 was with all the interior out, no hatch, fumes for fuel....2' chop.....going down river and one seat in it. That is what Kennyo keeps referring to with the bar stool jokes. I could see it....but just could not get there. I have dumped all the $$ I am gonna put in it with XR's. I am looking at that new drive.....time will tell if that is a viable solution. I am extremely happy with it as is. It will run 90 all day long in the heat with naturally aspirated motors and 3/4 fuel.....bust the hell out of waves and turn on a dime. I have looked at new boats.....but the "old school" continues to grow on me. I really like having something different. I may do some more cosmetic stuff this year. If I can get Deb some swimming lessons, I may be able to take the arch off. She likes to hang on to it when sunning. It is also a great bull chiting post to lean up against with a bad back.....and I watched to much Miami Vice. I have a picture of Don Johnson in my wallet

I was thinking the same thing. I am going to have to install one tab on the starboard side to offset my winter girth.. Remember it all turns to dik after midnight......just ask your wife!


Another 2 degrees of wing angle will compensate.....
