Default H2O Magazine and the big iron at E-Dock

Nice article in H2O Magazine. I now have a better understanding of what E-Dock is and who. Wow you guys bring the big iron to your lake. Nice pictures, big crazy air shots over a crusier wake. To be the top gun on that lake you will need a 200 mph turbine boat to get by all those bad azz cats.

Isn't this sort of thing supposed to be good for a boat?



The crack was no big deal- wasn't even a crack. Some paint chipped loose at the seam between the cap and hull on the starboard side (see photo above).
Scott told me he had been having some issues with the drive and I guess all the fun that weekend (see photo above) probably pushed things into the 'fix me' zone.

Jay is correct. Boat was fully intact and we went out and ran for awhile after getting everything checked out. Unfortunately while we were running we lost a set of gears. Great time and while we were getting the paint fixed we went ahead and got it all touched up, just like new.

Thanks Brad!

It's funny you mention the 200mph turbine boat. There's a guy here on the lake that has ordered a Mystic C-5000, OPEN cockpit for next year! HE's definitely coming with his gunz blazing!

That picture looks so clear & perfect it almost looks like it i photoshopped (i know its not).

How fast or at what angle do you think it takes where the front would flip over?
