Each time out we get to learn a lil more. find the edge even finer. We do run brand loyal for the most part so she's gettin alot of seat time in the same product. which truly helps.
Would not mind the opportunity to run with Mr. Martin with my girl.

Well looks like she's in good hands with all those guys and their experience. How old is she now? If I still had my boat my granddaughters would both be driving it this summer.

That's great, and neat to see. I grew up driving all kinds of stuff myself, but never anything with todays speed & technology. She definitely will be light years ahead of many boaters that didn't tug on Dad's shirt begging to drive as a kid. :coolcowboy:

shes now 13. and yes definately an edge. i wish as a child or young adult i grew up now with all the technology advances and such.
soon she'll be runin a super cat with a fellow member here. lil by lil.

I had my daughter driving on the 4th she is 10 she did a great job, I have to teach her on docking the boat. She knows how to tie it up properly and were to place the bumpers she does really well.

I can remember her throttling past a couple of my clients last year at the NYC Poker run!!!! That is just so cool!

Way to go

That's so cool.
My kids grew up on speed boats & poker runs.
What a life for them.
I grew up on Barnegat Bay crabbing & water skiing. A lot of fun but racing & poker running seems much more exciting.
And I must tell you it is.
We all are very lucky to be able to enjoy boating in any way, shape, or form.
