    Getting wet ain't bad. It is the broke ribs and chit on the way to getting wet that sucks.

    Maybe that is what is wrong with my buddys. He has a 427 in his. Fast as Hell but slow down before you turn it. And don't shut it down fast.

    Default texas tunnel

    Im driving a texas tunnel now for a Ray Dalke. Its a great little boat. I wouldnt drive one without a pop off valve. Ive shut the boat down after 100-200 foot bursts and I didnt use the valve trying to save air. never again it was a handful on shut down. It really bow steers with the tall tunnels in the front. It would be interesting with a high hp small block.

    Jake, just a warning, your getting that 16' running good enough to really start thinking about a real life jacket, not a 2 buckle ski vest but a lifeline or equivalent, that thing is going to bite you when you least expect it, not bitching you out, just being a concerned friend.
