Cool I'm Gonna Need A Bigger Boat!!!

Okay, I need a bigger boat! I know my Outlaw 20 is a great boat on the lakes, including Havasu, but after running in 3 to 5 foot chop with an occasional 6 + footer in the ocean today I felt a little edgy about running it hard. Plus, it is hard to keep up with a 38í Scarab and a 40í Hallett!!!!



3 to 4 foot swells are one thing but the chop is a whole different deal! I couldnít even get any pictures while running and I did get pretty wet, including a small, low speed nose stuff! I still had fun and flew the boat a couple times. Nothing big but just enough to whet my appetite for more! So, now Iím gonna get serious about something bigger (29+).

Or, something like this:

Yeah, that's true!

I guess I shouldn't complain (I wasn't really) boat ran great and had no problems (other than getting a little wet and having my heart jump up through my throat once! ). It really was a great day.


And Too Old is right, this sh!t is addicting!

A "true" 40 feet.
