We went to the Atlanta show the first day. It was like we had the whole place to ourselves. Worked out great. We went on all the boats and finished before the wee ones got tired.

Miss Gieco is SWEET! We saw Marc Granet out running Miss Gieco's sister-boat, Platinum Princess off Long Beach two summers ago. She took about a 4 foot swell at about 130mph and launched a solid 100+ feet... all of this took place about 100 yards off the bow of our boat... it was nuts.

Not even joking, the cost of a set of these props is more than the X-star you posted. They are labbed (read perfectly balanced, x-rayed for fractures, and lack any imperfections) and sharp as a razor blade... probably the reason they had the props off. Pretty much all these guys take the props off for transport. The props are dangerous and the risk of theft is very high.
