Never fun to hear this stuff...especially when someone has put so much into these boats! I'll keep an eye around Sandestin for anything fishy!

I think this boat was involved in a pretty public spin out a few years back when it was brand new. I recall seeing a write up in Powerboat (I think?). Super sweet with amazing details.

And i also think the driver cant hear that, in a semi .
But intresting is the impact wrench deal ????????mmmmmhhhhhhhh.
why is that strange?? i use my 18v snap on to change mine from side to side... they come off in less than 10mins more like you could have them off in 3 mins..... we use a fork lift to move them around....coming off is easy.. putting the plug in one back on is a PIA

That was at LOTO a while back. Maybe 2002? I saw it out in front of the Horney Toad. Was not a bad spn and they were not at speed. I would guess maybe 40MPH at tops. Just a slow spin. Some one said that the skeg broke off.

Man that SUCKS! Drive locks can be a good thing. If the driver was asleep after a long day, he would not hear someone taking the drives.

If I wake up and someone is jacking with the boat, I'm gonna donate some lead for a good cause

I assume your driver finally got out of the Keys? What a PITA goverment piracy that is I had my permit, and still had to sneak out.

I remember something about the Aqua Toy Store and the sale of the boat. I tried to search for it but came up empty. I was thinking that Aqua had sold the boat and did not have rights too. Maybe I was mistaken.
