Glad he admitted it was his mistake that caused it. Their offspring will probably eat Tide pods too.

an this is why before long there will be speed limits on public water because at those speeds you are not in control of a boat.

I imagine that all of the "Blue" states have some kind of speed limits as well as other restrictive rules. Like horsepower, certain fish you cannot catch during the spawn, and life vest requirements.

Oh yeah we now have a kill switch rule.

Heck guys at my age now I’m a lot more boring than I used to be but guessing some of y’all never took anything resembling a risk in your lives ie: never did anything that remotely resembled danger(fun) based on some responses here. Some almost sound like you are offended by their attempt. Honestly though if you don’t get it.....well, you just don’t/won’t get it. Didn’t look too risky to anyone but them. Cool video and ya they are lucky only the boat was tore up! sleep laugh

Calculated risk with safety measures in place is one thing. He admitted that the failure could have been prevented.

Exactly!

I would be willing to bet every dollar I have that most of you guys out there with 150 HP on up have pushed your boats right to the maximum limits a time or three. If you are not interested in speed & performance why waste your money on a big V6 or even a V8 outboard for your 'fishing boat'?

Do we really need to go 70 mph to catch a bass or is it more about the thrill of blasting across the lake on the pad, roostertail flying that gives us a little extra exhilaration to our fishing day. I will admit that some days the best part of my day was flying down the lake at Mach 7 passing all the cookie cutter boats in my Allison or Bullet.

Ask Sinkey how it feels to be WOT Balls to the wall at 70 and have another boat pass you like you're tied to a stump. grin

For all you guys judging the guys in the 102 mph boat I suggest you look in the mirror and ask yourself if maybe there was something you have done in your life that someone else might have considered stupid at one point. wink

For those of you that do enjoy a little speed on the water, this is a friend of mine in his 20' Allison race boat with a Merc 350 Drag SS outboard playing on the river. This race class does 5 mph to 120 in a shade over 9 seconds. BTW, that gauge in the center of the dash is a tach. Yes, it is hitting 10,000 RPMs. Not for the faint of heart.
