I have been slowly getting her use to driving for some time. Its a good idea to get them comfortable behind the wheel, ya never know it could be needed one day. She really does enjoy running the boat though. Last summer we were out and a friend came up on us in his Formula, had her spool it up to eighty and walked him. Man you should here him whine about a re match (all in fun) We always give him schit aout beind out driven by a girl lol.

My wife is pretty cool about my toys and going fast cause she loves it too.

We picked up my boat last November and got it wet this spring. On about our third time out, we went to a local lake in Carlyle IL thats about 1 mile wide/20 miles long and can get really snotty...

I was throttling the **** out of my boat in the slop to run 50mph trying to get a 30'+ cat with twins to play and he cruised next to us and then left us easily. My wife goes, "is that what your wanting to buy?". I replied, "that's exactly what I want." She goes, "wow that looks alot smoother than us getting beat up, go ahead and start looking for one."

Point is , there are plenty of us out there.... you just gotta find a girl who doesnt mind getting her hair messed up

I have to agree on there being plenty of girls that like to go fast. I can't speak for the boating just yet since I am still on the lookout, but I ride (street bikes) and girls love being on the back, and wanting to go faster. They complain I don't go fast enough, but I'm not running like the flash on the highway...No way!

2007 Chicago Poker Run....4-6' on Lake Michigan...

Me: "Now, it's pretty rough out there, if at ANY time you are uncomfortable, just let me know and we can turn around."
Her: "Ok."

Five minutes in...
Me: "You doin' alright."
Her: "Yes. Keep going."

15 minutes in...I slow down from 65-70 to about 55...
Her: "What did you do?"
Me: "Slowed down a bit."
Her: "Well speed the f#$% back up, we're getting pounded here!"

Man I love her.

The Wife loves to run WOT, but sometimes on the water we boat on in the midwest can get some big chop on it and she has a hard time holding on to both the bolster and "the girls" if you know what I mean, don't want to get bruised up.

The first time we got caught out on that lake in the 20 Outlaw, it took about five seconds to talk her into a bigger boat lol
