this looks like a great time. how hard is it to navigate locations? i know i couldnt keep up. my boat is done about 60 ish. my buddys boat should be about 70, but we cruz 40-45 50 on a good day. anyone going to be there cruzing slow we could follow? never been befor but 4-5 hours from my house to see these boats fly is well worth it if the weekend is open.

i wish my race car motor would work in the boat. maybe then if the water was ok i could keep up. 750 hp at the tires naturaly aspirated. would do it, but spinning her to 8,200 might not last long. lol. ball park 850 hp at the flywheel.

Dude..........don't sweat it, there will be plenty of boats in your mph range, different groups doing their thing all having a great time. You don't have to do all the "stops"...stay tuned to this thread and you'll see. Come on up.....I guarantee you will not be disappointed and you'll want to add it to your yearly schedule!!!

I've been known to cut a corner or three myself to keep up. Bring it on... "It's all good."

You and I need to hook up some time out there.

My boat does over 55 in perfectly calm water, 60 if I get a new prop

But if the wind makes for some two footers, let's say about 25 max. But that's with an iPod, the GF and a full cooler
