Dude, I'm not hole shotting it. It just gets on plane and stays there. Last year I had to feather the throttle to get on plane. Not his year. More low end torque. I just ease the throttle forward and I'm on plane, right now!!!

This aint no stinking ski boat!!! Even my mother said it seemed to "get going quicker" than last year. And she doesn't know a thing about torque and hp!! LOL!!!!

Mark, we usually end up with 7-10 boats. But lately it's been more like 10-12 boats.

our record for the july run is 17 boats and 67 people. i sent an email at work to the diehards (13 of them) and everyone at work with a boat has the schedule, so i think we could set a new record. we have a LOT of boat owners at work.
