Wow!!  :thumbup: :thumbup:

That's make your eyes water for sure  ;D

Looked like it stayed pretty stable until he got over 75 MPH. Then I noticed a little chine walking. Not too shabby for an aluminum hull!!

He hit 85 with this boat in windy conditions. Says he going to do some pad work.

Guess 85 isn't enough  ::)

That's insane! I think once you hit the 80 MPH mark, it's more than enough to kill you if you crash, so why not go for more?  :facepalm:
