Evidently my wife used to hang out with Barry and his younger brother Clayton, when they were all in high school. I recently pointed out to her that they were now billionaires. It made my modest success seem all the more modest.

Catmando you are correct again.
The boat was build for a great guy Mr Z. and it is over the top to say the least.
If you want to check it out, I just had a video made of the first sea trail in South Fl before I delivered the boat to Canada.

Now Zuperman looked up at me,
He said you roost so naturally,
I said now that you've learned the deal,
Let me tell why I'm so for real,
I'm flightclub here from Romulus,
I got line kittens and that's a plus,
A big old Skater out on the lake,
and when you see me you'll eat my wake...

Hey guys, I see this boat everyday since I live real close to him.

I promise I'll have a picture up tommorow of his rig and his AWESOME newly built boat lift.

And just the other day, someone in my area was saying that it smelt like jet fuel everywhere and I had to explain to them the superboat was powered by turbine engines, the same engines they use in a helicopter.

When I grow up, I want to be just like Barry.

Great video John and that boat is over the top, just like everything else that Barry owns. He is the man with all the toys we could only dream about having. I would love to see Barry and flight club running down the Detroit River from Belle Isle to the Ambassador Bridge. A heads up, WOT run to see who is the fastest. Let us all know if this ever happens.

You can be just like Barry when you grow up, all you need is millions of dollars.
