Running about 79 in that pic with stock torque master. New Nose cone will take care of cooling. Teak is a pain but it looks great and old skool.

Nice. I miss my HydroStream sometimes but the Donzi gets me on the big lakes too.

My Challenger handles our extreamly rough bay and the Atlantic Ocean just fine. Of course even iit has it's limitations. Hell its just 21 feet

Can it jump 6-8 foot freighter or yacht wakes? They have a habit of coming out of nowhere.

Default Well

This shot is me comming in from the atlantic ocean after the Geico Tripple Crown. Pretty rough with 18-20 foot sweals. Just got done jumping the wake off a Coast Guard 44. Got a big thumbs up from the whole deck crew.

Yes you were and you and your dad ran a good race. I couldnt stay in one place cause I was worried some big yacht would come over one of them swells and run me over. 36 foot boats would just disappear in the trench. You were much closer to shore than I was.
