I had a guy follow me into the parking lot at the boat launch, get out and say, 'man I never seen one of these up close. I just had to take a look." He asked me the same questions, motor, top speed, price, etc... Then he leans over and looks under the boat at the prop and says " man there is nothing protecting that thing, that seems really silly. Why wouldn't they build something in to protect it!" He was very upset that such a nice boat had nothing protecting the prop.
