I am going to whole heartedly apologize for my words above, but I still stand by my opinion from the other thread.

Boats today go alot faster compared to just 5 years ago. Todays hulls spin out sometimes and people get killed, what do you think was going to happen ???? Look what happened this year at Smoke, 2 people dead at a poker run, not a race, a poker run. Insurance companys pay attention to this. 2 or 3 major accidents a year will cause everybodys insurance to rise, its a fact.

Oh sh*t, I can't find a blushing smilie!

Thank you for the kind words, they weren't expected.

I have to confess, that the comments from one oso member, re: bad trimming, was slightly anoying, as he can't possibly know anything about the set up, ballance (or in-ballance) of my boat (it has very heavy diesel motors in it, which aint ideal) so his comment was unfounded, but hey!

I think the whole subject has really run it's course/life now, and i'm glad some people at least, enjoyed the video for what it is, even if it wasn't me who posted it.

This coming summer, we hope to get Andy (the cameraman) in a aircraft and do some more entertaining stuff.

cheers
