Here's something to think about that will scare the crap out of you....And I'm not using a calculator so I don't want to hear from someone how I'm off by 1/10 of a second...

At 150 mph you're traveling at approximately 225 feet per second

Average perception and reaction time is 1.5 seconds

That equals 338 feet that boat will travel at 150 mph before he even pulls the throttles back to avoid something! Thats a bit scary.


Call me up Doug, I need to talk to you.

I was also in the boat Saturday ... 140 at 5000r's

Mike is not ready to do more than 150 at this time and he knows it ... he's got a big name coming out Thursday for some special one on one Skater training. The boat is off the hook.
