Talking wife thinks I drive unsafe, need an opinion

She wanted a cruiser so I compromised.

Put in a 900SC and lowered the X dimension 6 inches ( the secret to getting a cruiser over 80 mph is lowering not raising the X dimension and trimming way up. This gets the hull out of the water which is where all the drag is so you can just ride on the prop)

I would have to recommend the drink holders with the swivel bottom.

Re-entry ?

We just ride like this all day, it takes some steering skill kinda like rideing a unicycle but once you get a feel for it its not to bad
