I remember someone on hear saying that the "flip" slowed their boat down 2 to 3 mph. I myself would trade the speed for the comfort, but if you want to eek every bit of speed out, it might be something to consider.

So that's all we need to do!!! Just get our old battle wagons going 80-90 MPH. That way our passangers riding in our boats as we speed down the highway will not be buffeted by the wind. Cause, I figure that's the only way mine is going to go that fast


Got back home about 10:00 last night, and left the Suburban on the street with the templates in the back. Door bell rang about 4:00am this morning. A real nice guy screwed up and ran right into it. He broke his finger, his car had to be towed away, and the suburban is banged up, BUT THE TEMPLETS ARE OKAY!!!! I can't image how hard it must have been for him to ring our door bell at 4:00 in the morning and say "I just hit your car." We were nice about it and even offered him coffee. He assumed responsibility and did the right thing, and his insurance company should make us whole. Someday when I screw up that bad, I hope the other party also nice.
