Well, for being only 25, the show had a small impact on me. The thing that drew me was the looks that i saw when the big boys came out to play. Loud engines, girls, and some sort of magical existance is what i saw when these boats were running. A Mach 1, 2 fountains and a Black Thunder later, I'm hooked for sure.

Yes and no.....first saw offshores as a kid on vacation every year in Saugatuck MI when they used to do a race between there and Grand Haven. Got hooked for real with Vice. Still love watching the old episodes on DVD....never know what classic boat you'll run cross on there!

I own a Scarab because of that show. But I was into boating 8 years before the show.
