You did that before I was born, but only by a year.

There are V bottoms that run over 100.....

Actually I've seen some outerlimits V's smoking at the Cumberland poker run, but never been in a V over 100.

Ridden in plenty of cats that run over 100 and have never felt unsafe.

Default I wonder how many

V bottom boats over 36 feet actually run over 100 MPH in the United States. Real #'s 250? 100? 500?

One Sunday morning in Jan. for a birthday present, he took me up. He asked me if I was up for a little excitement, stupidily and totally out of my mind I said "sure". Bad answer. He took me for a dive, at over 600 mph, under the old Sunshine Skyway bridge. I have yet to "unpucker" from that incident. I was never so scared in my life. Coolest thing I've ever done........
Now that is cool. Sign me up!
