Would love to feel the difference of 100 in a big boat compared to 100 in the small stuff.
100+ in a small boat that sits closer to the water is so much scarier!

Yup, but still nowhere near as scary as trying to stay attached to her on a monoski...

It definitely got the adrenaline pumping! The acceleration was cool too. Now running 70mph in big water is my fix.

Agreed. I'll take 60-80 in big water. One of the best days I had was running back from Miami to Lauderdale in ASG's old 38 TG. It was an HONEST 6+ into them all the way. When we pulled into Port Everglades the rub rail was kinked out in a V shape about an inch on both sides from the hull/bow flexing as we hit each one. We were sore for a week. And we were only running 60ish.

Best Adrenalin ride was racing in a 29' Mirage in legit 6-8's (average race speed was 45mph!)
Scariest ride: Hot laps in a flat bottom garvey.
