I guess with 900 HP it's easy to back up that fast.

I also agree. Lets get back to the topic. Accusations have been made that the 36 Invincible in the video stuffed because the hull is a knock off and it is a bad design. Many have asked where this information has come from but the person making the claim refuses to answer.

This is better than going down to the boat ramp on the 4th of July!

That pointy ass needle dick boat will spear a wave long before any Invincible.

I'd never even heard of Solid Boats until reading this gem of a thread... now I know why.

Crockett and Tubbs would be proud.

That just proves how much of a d bag this guy is. Like anybody gives a f**k about how much money you make. There are plenty of people on this forum that make a hundred times more than this ass hat, and are nice people about it. You could make all the money in the world but at the end of the day you are still a jerk off with corn rows.

Not to mention that pos solid. There is a reason that you dont see any of those boats anywhere...

I had to come back on here to clarify a couple issues. First off, I run the ICON controlls on this boat which have been great. The are more sensitive than mechanical throttles. When the wave came over the bow it sheared all the snaps out of my stataglass and hit us all with a ton of force. I was pulling back on the throttles when I noticed the impending doom and the force of the water pulled me back to where they were accidentally thrown into reverse. That's what killed the engines. After checking to see if everyone was alright and still aboard we proceeded down sea. The video is 4 minutes long and the deck was drained in two minutes. We are spending two nights offshore with minimal sleep, your mental capacity is at about 50% by the second day. Hand bailing the cockpit wasn't nessesary but, I didn't hurt.
Nolimit40 sure has a pretty boat. If he is using it everyday than he must have a kick ass parasailing business. All of the lounge seating must keep his customers happy unless those are quad reverse fighting chairs for knee battling. Judging from the picture posted I'm sure we have very different tastes in boats, trucks, music, and lifestyle. You need to remember this. All boats have flaws and all engines will break. If you don't believe this you are a moron.
I know my vessel top to bottom. I know what it can do and how it performs. Most importantly I take full responsibillity for everything and everyone aboard. I don't make up excuses for my failures on design flaws or Murphy's law. We fish really hard, as do a lot of other crews. Just remember to be safe, a fish isn't worth dying for.

Captain, I got chills reading this post. Glad everyone got home safely.

As for the crew hand bailing. That was kind of funny, but I am glad there is no video of my actions when scared sh!tless.

Become an active member of THT. As you can see, we need all the professional help we can get.

Exactly. Those bilge pumps came on almost immediately and kept pumping hard. Bravo for the bilge pumps, but terrible reflection of an open bilge. The only thing the bailing crew should have been doing is holding on and clearing the scuppers. No man can bail and no bilge pump can lift and evacuate water like a proper scupper system.

Had the exact same situation returning from Walkers into SW 33 knot winds. Very challenging conditions that were not accurately forecast by NOAA (but that were accurately reported after). In the exhausting 5 hours of piloting from Walkers to West End I misjudged one breaking wave and took a surprising amount of water over the bow. I briefly slowed to take stock of the situation and saw the crew floating around the cockpit on their beanbags...then got right back on the throttles. No water in the bilge and the deck was cleared in maybe 2 minutes. I was actually shocked that all that water was gone and figured it must have forced its way into the bilge. Nope, nothing more than a wisp.

I'm trying to figure how all the water got down into the bilge. I'm sure Invincibles are designed with that issue in mind.

All that makes sense; I just cannot understand all the water in the bilge.

so you pay someone else to feed you.

some of us enjoy the sport of fishing. going out on the sea in boats, catching seafood, bringing it home to feed ourselves, our family, and our friends.

you spend your money ordering people to bring you seafood and keeping the corn rows pretty.

the rest of us will spend our money however we see fit. For me and the majority on THT, it's getting our own seafood.

you make this too easy.
