Cool No Coments About The Fast Boats On Travel Channel Last Night ???

I thought it was a pretty good show ! Saw a lot of well known boats and some well known people too !!

Did anyone wonder about that eliminater cat in the beginning porposeing like crazy ?? Seams they would have edited that out if they wanted the boat to look good ! Not nocking the boat ! I think they are cool looking boats !

Boot, I did see that and wondered if anyone really knew what they were looking at. I also noticed it was pretty wet so they must have trimmed down for the picture but they can't fool me. It was a pretty good show. I am not to big on 40 mph ferries but the boat molds and other info was good. The one Ferry had some major power. I might be wrong but I think I heard 30,000hp I also liked the race boat coverage. It was something to see, maybe it will be on again soon.

Did you notice that they blurred the word ***** on Snack Attack's transom, thought that was funny!! They did it for the first shot but when they were in the water you could just make it out behing the tie bar.

I though it was a very good show, I didn't know that the Eliminators are painted before they are molded???? If someone could explain that one I would appreciate it.
