Default Bat Boat Returns

Great project by a guy who knows his stuff, http://speedonthewater.com/boat-rest...t-returns.html.

Apologies in advance for the double link. Copyright/contractual thing.

See you in Key West.

Watched a 22 racing in Orange beach a couple of weeks ago. The boat just defied physics. Passed a few boats much bigger, and in 6-8ft swells mind you.

Awesome article and what a great story. I cannot think of many people that have had the same boat for that long (and 3 different sets of power). It is definitely one of those "must see" boats.

Great boat! I rode in "Tom's" in Long Beach and it took on water after that and almost sunk. It was a crazy and awesome ride for sure and loved it! I've never had a 5-point harness on before in a boat or after that. I forget what happened.....I'm not sure if he ever got it back together. It sucked.....but I'll always remember it! Thanks Tom!
