That's cool but they should put some tracking fins on the bottoms of those tinnys. They handle like a forklift.

I would so try that out. 100kph is only like 61-62mph so it is not that fast, but I'm sure it feels like you're flying being in such a little boat and so close to the water. I don't know if I would lay in the bow going head first at trees like they do.

Very cool video

I think we should have some Aussies and some Louisiana boys hang out for a week. Now that would be the ultimate mayhem.

Looks like fun! I'd do it.

I wonder what the guy is pumping on at 2:40. Jackplate? Trim tab?

Looks like you found the bush league (pun intended) of jet sprint racing. I would love to try it!

We usually put 50hp tohatsus on thunder cats and race them throught the surf.

Bloody oath I reckon we could tear the place apart while running a muck.

Spike where am I flying to? Am I crashing at yours? or do I get relegated to the deck of the boat? Which wouldnt bother me at least id already be in the boat and ready to go skiing. Im keen as im thinking of doing a trip your way next year for my honeymoon.

If any TT members are ever in Sydney hit me up for some boat time. You wont regret it.

The boat is pretty comfy now with the new interior and carpet. The other advantage is that you'd be close to the beer fridge!
Otherwise, I'm sure we'll find you a bed inside :-)
