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!
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.
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.
