I have to wait

untill tomarrow night to watch it, I don't have national geo so one of the guys in work is taping it for me.

I have seen clips of it on S&F though, what do you think of Ronnie's Hydrostream Viper? That boat is just unreal!!! A 280 on a 15' boat, he had it running 112mph after the making of that program and has since flipped it at over 90mph.

These fkn things are starting to be a pain in the a$$ , I wrote on another thread what happened, they eventualy arrived last week and when I went to collect them from the depot there had been a mix up with no.'s and racking and my boxes were put on a plane to Dubai, yeah fkn Dubai!
Thing that gets me though is my two boxes with a total weight of 29kg's were mistaken for two big 3 seater couches, probably nearer 300kg's ???? I also got hit for a crap load of duty, charges and VAT

Supposed to be back from their little trip tomarrow. So hopefully can get something done with them, although I wont have a day off for about 2 weeks with the boat show.

Yes, it's one of the boats in the 'Outboard Overkill' video on S&F.

I love that vid; wonder if there's a higher res version.
