Default Speed is a beautiful thing

Just got home from a day of boating. I ran into a friend out there and he took me for a ride on his boat. My new personal fastest, 155 MPH. What a freekin rush. It was amazing. The boat actually felt more stable at 155 than it did at 95, but I'm sure that's just me. Very smooth running boat

I did 134 on the same friends first 32 skater, about 10 years ago. He went to a 36 foot skater, I never got a ride, he went to a 40 foot skater, still no ride. He now is back to a 32 and I luckily ran into him, and the opportunity was there. I took advantage. I'm so glad I did. He's an awesome guy and I've known him for probably 32-33 years. He just happens to be a busy guy, but when I see him, it's alot of laughs ( and speed ). Everything he owns is fast, even when we were in junior high, he had fast stuff.

I wish I had some for you. It's a hot boat. It used to be on youtube, I don't know if it still is. It had the speed record for a 32 foot boat ( not sure if the record still stands- I think it was 172 or 175 or 177, something like that )

It was so funny though. Me and a friend are flying around on my boat thinking we were so fast and cool, and then we jump on the Skater and do 100 mph more than we were just going. Talk about a dose of reality
