Default Now This...

... looks like fun. Now don't be pointing no finger at him. There's no one around so he isn't endangering anyone. There's no boats around so he's not endangering anyone's property. He's not wearing a PFD, he's not required to wear and PFD and it's none of my business if he wears one or not. As with all fun things in life there are risks. Look at skydiving. So, yeah, it looks like fun and if I were younger I can't say I wouldn't be doing it.

I like it. I'd do it if I were a few years younger myself.

I couldnt see the transom, but it looks like it might be a ZapCat. 50 mph with a 50 hp Yammie. Its a whole class of racing in some parts of the world. Google ZapCat racing and check it out.

(of COURSE I want one.)

We should give that link to everyone who asks about over-powerring their boat.
