Here's what happens when the pilot is not prepared for the boat captain to "shower down on it" and then let off instantly. I keep telling these baot guys, if you want to be in the video keep a constant speed anywhere below 120 knots.

Great to see you here John. Welcome!!

I have been speaking to Beau and I'll be glad to help with the Lanier Event. I'll see you on the Lake Memorial Day weekend.

Thank you for the video! It is my first in this new boat. I thought you wanted to race..

The latches just slam shut and lift to open, flawless. MTI is A plus throughout especially the heat and A/C I requested for those cool mornings or hot afternoons.

Not this year. Long way to go for a tree day event but it is fun. Went with Woods last year and the Naked pirates cove restaurant bar is off the hook. 1000 boats pulled up on shore.

THEY GOT NO TREES, JUST ROCK, oh and blue flashing lights

Okay, my question is two parts:
(1). all things equal (beautiful day for flying or boating with plenty of powerboats running over water you can fly freely) do you prefer the airborne windship or the water one?
(2). how close did they get to the recipe? http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radi...riginal-recipe
