Skiing speeds are most important for accuracy, but knowing the difference between 47mph and 49mph are more important to me than <6mph. I have some boats that will peg the speedos and then some... so maybe the opinion of this mouth breather doesnt count?
Tim, you have a good point. The only reason I know what speeds I have pulled the little ones is because I looked at the GPS speedo after the fact, i.e., after I did it by feel and made sure everything looked good behind the boat. High end is probably the better place to know the small differences in speed.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
