Bill- the MV music is covered under under my Sonny Crockett Wannabe franchise. Please remit your check this morning.
This is going to get expensive. I even ordered a working "brick" Motorola phone last night. I think it will be pimp for the poker runs

If you get the platinum package, you can have an aluminum briefcase full of white powder, a black friend with a funny, unrecognizable accent and drive a kit car with overdubbed Ferrari sounds. You can also get a sound-effects device to make your blown big-blocks sound just like outboards. Or is it the other way around. Anyway, all this for one low monthly fee. Plus, we'll throw in the phone AND you can date Sheena Easton.

Then stick with a deep vee over 35 feet in length. Stick with a name brand because unless you spend a half-mil, you'll be wanting to upgrade in the first month or so. There's no such thing as "too much" in this game and you're going to probably need to sell it to get the next bigger/faster one. Scarab/Cig/Fountain sell better than the less-recognizable boats.

Until that CC with a load of fisherman passes you!

I wasn't suggesting he stay in a v-drive lake boat. Just that if he was in that fast of a lakeboat he's probably going to find himself gravitating toward a faster offshore boat.

That's a nice looking boat but only Stecz would like that "pride" sunpad.
