However, Some of the deep V guys said they had success with the product. maybe it works at slower speeds?

Whatcha tryin' to say?!!?! Sounds like a back handed swipe at the V crowd!

Just kidding. BTW, is that your cat you can see crossing the Pinellas Bayway? There are two at one house, one with OB's and the other IO's.

Default little fun

ok you got me cuda.

just a little fun......No that 36 Spectre is Todd Werner of Flowmaster Racing. Mine is on the other side of the island across from the Pass a grille Marina. Swing by and say hello you cant miss me.

My little attempt at humor was a light hearted way to tell people not to waste their money on "fantasy speed"

You going to make the run this weekend?

When I bought HMS Dea Won...a 1981 Shadow Cat, I noticed the bottom(running surface---not tunnel) was incredibly orange pealed...so I took it off the trailer and spent the better part of a week wet sanding and compounding and waxing the bottom...

Afterwards, I told some of my HP buddies what I had done and they looked at me like I had rocks in my head...not because I spent all that time and effort, but because they said the bottom was supposed to be that way...it was done on purpose to make the boat faster! I just made the boat slower!! What did I know...I ws just some dumb kid with his first offshore race boat...

I wonder what T2X has to say??
