Growing up, my parents pulled the old Proline 20 with a Coupe de Ville with no problem, even on Keys ramps. I pulled a 22' bay boat with a 2WD/limited slip pickup with zero issues. The YF requires...

The sticker on the side does not tell the whole tale. Actual HP can vary substantially from the sticker and differences in torque do exist. Bryan is right. The DF140 is not in the same ballpark...

I don't think it's their historical data. They were kept on because they still put asses in seats, regardless of their current stats.

Some of these people being flippant about this would lose their mind if it happened to them. This is likely thousands of dollars of damage.

Since as long as I can remember there has been intense competition for larger boat loans, so with a large pool of loans, I'd say the risk is a lot lower than you think. It's really not that hard to...

I've heard the same thing. Sounds like wishful thinking by some or a little behind the scenes PR work. The point I was making is that at this point it looks like the state has some hard facts that...
