    Default brains and experience

    I would just like to say to all of the regular postees out there that you guys have created such an amazing wealth of knowledge on this site that a newbie such as myself can spend hours at a time learning the ins and outs of almost anything in the world of performance boating that it is incredible. Seriously thank you

    Thats because we've blown up almost everything possible and I think it is more bad experience than brains.

    Default Strange heading??

    I find this a very strange heading for a boating forum... If we had any brains we'd be raising rabbits, or sheep, or geese.... The one "saying" that is very true, "If you aint blowing shit up, you aint trying hard enough" seems to be practiced here very well..... I know I've blown up my share of shit, but most of it can be attributed to "Driver error"......Never to the builder, never.....

    Brains and Experience

    Brains: Spending hours upon hours figuring out a better way to run, win, compete, go faster, get lighter, burn better, etc. Map it all out. It simply has to work. IF anyone else has tried something so genius...(and it did not work)...well, they just did not do it right.

    Experience: What you get from those hours of thinking, doing, then finding out IF it works OR if you just blew up your sh** with that genius idea.
    HAHAHA

    Oh, I've been both places.

    Someone once told me good judgment comes from experience... and experience usually comes from bad judgement. Seems to fit
