Default you know what kills me???

what kills me is guys who buy boats that are not fast hulls and want to go fast!!!!! and spend stupid money and try stupid tricks to eek out a mph or 1.5. I dont get it.
I am not saying that guys who dont run their boats hard and try little things to get max performance are in this category.

I guess I am saying I dont get it when a guy buys a boat, wants to do 90+ all day and chooses a boat that clearly was never designed to do it. Then spends ungodly amounts on unreliable power and parts to make the attempt reality. When infact he could have bought a slicker hull, put in less power and acheived his goal

everyone wants what they want...but sometimes I just dont get it

Like a Honda. Sure, it can beat a real car, but with the 30k in engine work alone, you could have bought a vette and it looks and sounds better. (Just once saturn excluded from this statement)

I know your not specifically pickin on me, but what you are talking about, were my intentions for a long time, I am going to sell this one, and buy a Fast Boat instead, it seems like a losing battle trying to keep the old one up, and make it faster at the same time.
