PS, I'm about 5:15 into the vid.

Not sure what your point was, but my point, perhaps too subtle for you, was that the captain of the boat should at the very least make sure his passengers wear helmets and life jackets when traveling at those speeds.
Let me guess your a attorney?

Represented Tom Newby's estate (RIP 9/11/07) so guessing ScarabJ and Mike A. aren't best of friends.

one engine is broken and dragging an outdrive...the other is trimmed way up and trying hard to keep the boat going at a reasonable pace.

Is catmando taking time out of his busy day of s*ckin obama shaft to talk chit about somebody he doesnt know? But then again...he knows everybody in the boating industry on a first name, text messaging, basis. My bad.

Yeah, I'm more impressed by the V. Cats SHOULD run that speed, huh?

It might not kill every cat, but it probably kills a lot of 'em.

I think Reggie is a funny little guy. JMO
