Hold On!! In the rough water!! I had my wife and a friend of hers on board last year and we were running along at about 60 mph and she started to loose her top!!! She asked me.......what should I hold on to the boat or my top.......what did I say........the boat of course!! She went out with us last weekend.... she wore a tight fitting bathing suit Wife knows that the only talking is me yelling Hold On!! Unless the water is calm and then we can carry on a small conversation.

Try and figure out why they are in the boat.

They sit and talk, have drinks, they can go in the cabin and mix blender drinks, the only thing I must have is a drink for docking and a bow bunny.

If the girls must kiss when docking, I will close my eyes,


Just Remember my boat is a slow, very slow.

Usually I watch them spray beer all over their face when they are drinking and we hit a wave.

I take very few people out, learned why a while ago. Unless they have some idea of what to expect it just isn't fun.

I tell them what to expect while underway and what is expected of them, NOTHING.

One time a friend of my wife's was screaming at me to slow down, from the death defying speed of 45 mph. I throttled it straight to Marina Jack's, gave her a twenty dollar bill, and told her to take a cab back to the launch ramp where her car was. Have not heard from her since. Wife was a little pissed but she got over it.

My wife knows what to do and when to do it. We don't have to say a word. Once in a very great while she'll simply ask, which side are docking to? Other than that she's got everything else covered.

People don't seem to understand that these boats are less like a ride on a Sea Ray, and more like a ROLLERCOASTER!

I even fabricated removable seatbelts for my kids.
