Default No Trailer, No Tow Veh., No Problem!!!!

Check this out..

A friend of mine spent all his time getting the boat together.

Whe he was done he was so excited and wanted to get it wet he didn't realized his steel tralier was completely corroded. Not one to ask a favor he pulled up his other Truck and went to work.


Notice the 3 55gal oil drums......His Current trailer

Are you in Tortola? Looks like it. I was down there last year and was amazed at how many speed boats there are out there. I also saw Shakin and that boat came from the lake that I go to up in Maine..... Small Small world I guess. I talked to the owner for a while and he was a real nice guy. Said he was going to buy a new quad step....

Yeah I am in Tortola, British Virgin Islands

The powerplay was GPS @ 76 with five on board in 2 - 2.5' chop. Not bad at all. I think we can get more out of it but he's waiting until the engines are fully broken in to really open it.


Derick (the guy that owns Shakin') is my Cousin. He's put in bigger power and a new set of drives. That baby really moves. Not sure if he's still going for the quad.

Tomba what did he replace the B-max's with? He said he hated them. Did he go for # Drives? That was always one of my favorite boats
