Ever do your towing on the weekends? Are you flagging the corners or even using WL signs? What's the beam on yours anyway?

I ask as I've gone back and forth, but mine was only a little over 9' wide and I've never been stopped either.

Gino, when you sell the Mercedes Boat, are you building some other monster creation? Bigger & Faster? Just curious. I always loved your videos, OSO stories, and magazine coverage.

Also, Poker Run 388 (Kid or as you guys call him Mini Hawk 2) didn't do too bad on this one. No asking how fast every boat goes and can you post pics. This was an informative thread.

Not a chance kid. You're 1 for 100.

You state your opinions for facts. A lot of people use this forum to get information on a decision that cost big $$$$$$. God forbid someone read your post and took it for face value. If you used the search button, almost all of your threads could have been answered.
