I'm patiently waiting for Al Gore to invent something that will bring all us boaters together in some futuristic electronic medium.




Sorry, had to jump on the bandwagon.





Wait... are there bandwagons yet?????

This thread has the potential to eclipse both the Pimp of the Nation thread and the Subway thread combined!


(Now someone will search and bring those threads to the top!)

Word is he's gonna put steps into the hull to reduce friction and make the boats go faster. Sounds great for straightaway speed but I wonder how that's gonna work out in the turns?

Anyone hear anything about it?

Not sure of the steps you speak of but I heard that testing has proven that throttles and shifters on the left side add 50hp

I think we all know that Bajatain will never go bankrupt because they have sizeable reserves due to the "sell your jewelry" monopolies that are currently in place to spur our economy and other than Mr. T, the little jumpsuit guy can definitely set the market!!!!!!

This high performance boat thing is done. Its all going down the tubes. The trustees are going to figure out where these molds go after liquidation. After a few years its going to rebuild itself.
