I really had no idea.....I'm going to get that book...anybody got a used copy to sell? Really sad looking at that pic and what it looks like today. I also had no idea about the no wake zone's and all they were talking about on the show......that stuff really changed everything.

The no-wake zones are a pain in the azz, but they are on the ICW, arent we talkin Offshore Boats????

I havent seen any No-Wake Zones Offshore!!!!!!!!!!!!

Personally, I cant stand them, My boat is loud, but not that fast, it can get annoying even to me to be idling for an HOUR, and my boat is a little too small to be spendin much time offshore, unless conditions are perfect, so I choose to do most of my boating from Delray up North to Palm Beach, there are a few nice long spots where I can open it up for a good run.

Yes, I am sure it is not as open as it was years ago(Sonny Crockett runnin wide open in the ICW), but what I am saying is these boats are made to run offshore, so if we use common sense, and wait til we get out into open water to run em hard, all is fine. I have read more stories of people in other parts of the Country(Lakes) bein harassed for noise, than down here, I am sure there are a few neighborhoods, but for the most part people look and wave when they hear the loud exhaust. Yes we have Manatees(I agree they taste like chicken too), but to a certain extent we need to let them live, if they werent *****in save the manatees, they would be *****in loud exhaust, or anything else just for a reason to *****(I am sure we all know some of these people). So I say, let em keep their no-wake zones, and we will go have our fun where it's legal.

OSO sent me a DVD copy of the show when I renewed, Very good show.

I am in the middle of reading "Speed Kills" right now, so far it is very interesting.

Anybody know where I can get a copy of "The King of Thunderboat Row"?????

Corrado, he also said that they had hours worth of calls made by Ben that were very incriminating. I would love to actually hear these calls myself but that will never happen. I am sure that they would not have gone after him just on circumstancial information. There is probably more that they just didnt divulge for what ever reason, legal or time constraints. It would have been nice if they did give a little more info on the connection between the two and the homicide. It would clear up alot of the petty bickering back and forth.
