    Dillon is a pro on that rope man, he's making all that look effortless.

    I had to turn it all the way up to hear it.

    That is our 3rd ez up this year. Try them and take them back. This one from Attwoods 10x20. Import 299.00. Really want something 12' wide and at least 20' long. Was going to ask around the pits but didn't get the chance.

    Man your boat really hauls ass.
    1 question, is that normal to have to turn the wheel that far to the right while doing a pass? Seams awkward..

    i've been using 2 10x15s for the past 7 years or so. works fine. black is way cooler than white. i either have 'em end to end, or side by side, depending where i am. one is ezup, the other is something else that was about half the price, but seems more solid. impactcanopy. couple years ago, got caught in a windstorm that did a job on the ezup. broke a couple corner pieces, and bent up/broke several trusses before i could gather it up. there's an ezup website where you can order every single part on the thing individually, so rebuilt it for about $100.
    i like the 15s because i can put 'em up myself. i've helped lots of guys put up 20s. doesn't seem like something i can do by myself.
    and if 2 10x15s aren't enough, i've got a little cheapy 9x9 that i carry along just in case i also have some old white 10x10 side curtains i got with some really old ezups 12 years ago. i'll still take a couple those if i need to hang something down the side for more shade...

    Tommy ran a 7.43 @ 152. Awesome for a new boat, motor and no seat time. Nice to see open boats running hard.

    Be careful guys. 7.30s is no f&$king around territory. Especially on accident. I hope to see a wing on that boat soon. The boat is definitely making some power. Congrats and see you in phoenix

    Thanks and it will have a wing soon enough. We don't intend to run it any quicker than 8.0 1/4 mile and 6.0 1000'.

    Might consider putting a tune up on it and bringing it out and one of you NJBA guys can drive it. Some day.
