Possibly Jim's activities didn't raise your insurance rates...maybe your false statements did???

Simple observation. Call me the a$$clown police.
I told jim I was going to go through his posts and do that when I got home just now got here and you did it for me... thanks...

I also noticed that the video was removed from youtube....interesting.



The big difference is I was wearing a Lifeline jacket in the picture with my hands on the wheel and throttles.
cause that 28 you can't take your hands off at 80 never mind a 100, been there in small cat, medium and extra large cats ride better with size been on all sizes. totaly different than your boat yours is more like a tri hull than a skater.those big cats give a completely different ride. oh when I run 85 in my lil boats I use a lifeline and cord cause its not no 46 skater. do your self a favor and drop it.

That picture was taken for a photo shoot in Tahoe when we were only driving about 1/2 a mile at a max speed of 45 m.p.h. and you're right we didn't have our Lifelines on. It was also taken three years ago and since then I have made lifevests mandatory when we are on plane. ANd if you look closely I have one hand on the wheel and one on the throttles. I think lifevests are a personal choice but letting go of the wheel at over 100 m.p.h. is just nuts.

I hope everyone has a pleasant Thanksgiving.
