Default for you night owls, on the Disc. channel at midnight..... FAST boats

Some show about going fast. Didn't catch the name.....they showed several race V's and a couple of big cats....looks like an interesting show. Might be worth checking out.

Also going to show open wheel race cars and airplanes.

I was actually dissappointed in the coverage on the boats. They spent too much time on the stupid cars. All they did was hilight some driving/racing school for boats down in florida. Had some nice boats and looked like it would be fun but I would rather go out in my own than pay to take a turn driving one of theirs. All I know is that it made me want to go out and hit the water. Damn frigid winter!

Very disappointed. Wasn't worth staying up for.

The thing that supprised was that they had a school for hp boating and only a few people were wearing life preservers. Must of cut out of that class.

Well, sorry it wasn't better. The commercial looked cool.

I didn't make it thru it either....got to the planes and I couldn't stay awake anymore.

My wife spotted Crazy Greg, the 35 foot Sonic in the show "racing" the cats! Good girl!

We are just back from three days at Palm Harbor marina, the same marina in the show, and did not see any promo stuff about this fast boat driving school,or the boats. I wonder if it is still functioning, otherwise I'd have signed up the wife!
