    I just heard there was a little boat to boat contact, nothing major. We, my wife and I, didn't go as we had other plans along with having our grandkids for the weekend.

    No problem man. Not insulted, I appreciated the explanation. And you're correct, I haven't started on the v-drive education, don't plan to unless I get one or take a ride in one. I don't know a lot about them. Only how they work at the most basic level. I've actually never even seen one in person,lol there's not too many of them around here, actually I can't remember ever hearing about anyone around here having one. Thanks.

    Do they require less horsepower to go fast because they have a gearbox or is it because they have a prop? My one and only v-drive question.

    But it's still got the motor in backwards, has a transmission, and uses a prop. Ain't no simple jet boat.

    Just seems like a lot more going on to break and have problems, than there needs to be.

    They sound like a lot of fun though, but I think I'll stay with my Jet. Maybe when I get rich and famous I'll get one just for shits and giggles.

    No thread jack here Tom, I like gettin' distracted by good lookin' stuff and nice riggin'!

    Look at all the smilies! lol

    Yeah, I know enough about V drives to be dangerous! LOL!! I am 'brushing up' though. Hopefully my next move is a 21' Schiada V drive. So I better know my stuff!
