Default Finally got my first issue of Extreme Boats!!

Pretty cool magazine. Features on props (written by our own Joe "Audacity" Skrocki.....nice picture Joe!!!), the new 50' Nor-Tech cat with quad 1350 hp motors (168 mph!!), and the Jet Set Skater, among other articles.

Looking forward to my next issue.

I just got mine in yesterday. I haven't had a chance to sit and peruse the pages, but my son had some great adjectives to describe it as he took it off to his room...

Be patient guys...

well,,,like i said what do ya wana know??...most of the mag is about stern drives...as most boats are....we have a specific OB tech section to show we have not excluded them as hi-performance boats.

i answer A TON of tech questions daily via email at EBM every day...try to answer a few here in OSO as well...

i feel that very specific questions that are addressed in a mag is wasted...hell, most of them can be answered with a quick phone call...you need to check X, Y and Z...then let me know.

i would like to address things so reader gains knowledge so he can answer his own questions...that's why i really stayed away from a 'specific' application when i wrote to propeller illusions...there is a lot of BS out there!...it's my job to sort it out for ya...

please feel 100% totally free to contact me with any ideas... 734 635 1697

How bout 2nd class delivery so we know the magazine will come on time. Not 2-3weeks late. Sending it 3rd class (Ground-non-priority)just dosne't cut it. But the content was great and your concept of the tech section is right on Joey....
