Puder, your too young to remember. Tickets were sold A-E rather than by the book.

The E ticket rides were the most expensive and best. Now days, that would be an 8 ticket ride.

GOOD:
Thats VERY impressive. It's a realyy pretty boat and Paint Job ( Kinda Drambuieish). Whatta ton of horse power! Cool rigging on the exhaust.
BAD:TOO many people in the boat, (HTM). I would NEVER get in a bravo boat at those speeds. There is such thing as too much with too little. I learned the hardway.
Good Luck with this project and PLEASE BE SAFE.

haha sorry guys. YOu got afew years on me, Let not foget until hyperbaja showed up i was OSO's youngest member.

as for a 4x4 holding 1000hp. As i recall merc only warrantees ssm6 drives upto 900hp. And a 6 is a ****load beefier than ANY bravo derrivative, and guys still manage to break em.

Yeah they have come a long way with the b1 upgrades But at 150 any minor drive issue is catastrophic and they will be calling a diver to collect the passengers.

That being said i do like the eticket ride and these guys seem to know what they are doing and are the manufacturers testign thier new design. So its more reasonable for them to go further out on the edge.
