Default Cant leave it alone

Some guys can buy a boat and use it year after year and can be happy going the same speed every year.On the other hand some guys cant leave well enough alone.They have to upgrade their performance or speed every week.Who are you?

If they could build it right the first time I would not have to modify them

I have had the Hustler 3 summers with out doing anything major to it.. But Since I am freshing them up anyway might as well put some blowers on them.I like tinkering .I dont change boats or car verry often just keep modifying them till I got ton in them I even modifed my girlfriends hair dryer to blow more air.

You can always go bigger or get more HP. I guess it's how deep are your pockets?

I am pretty happy with our 33' Powerplay
