    Yes, they have size limits in some areas already (launch areas, slips, etc.).

    If you feel that your potato chip should be the only size on the river, write you congressman. Whining on the internet just doesn't come across well...lol.

    Exactly! Many jetboat/ v-drive guys have this attitude that they are the orignial boats of the river, therefore they have more rights and bigger, more expensive boats shouldn't be entitled to go north of Park Moabi. I own a jet boat and don't feel any less comforable running next to a 25'+ boat. The only boat I hate running into is a wakeboard boat with a 5' wake. But I just deal with it. LOL!

    I don't care what size boat you roll, large or small.....the attitude you have while driving it is what's more important IMO. Too often people feel it's their right to run as fast as the rev limitor allows regardless of traffic and other people enjoying their right to be on the water. Seems like too many people think what they are doing is more important than what others are doing.

    I still remember the first time I saw a large cat (it was all white is all I remember) up in front of NMP come completely off and idle through some heavy traffic.....it was the right thing to do, but you sure don't see it happen very often up there.....

    I have a 22' and could care less. So maybe they should have kicked me out of school cause i was taller than everyone else?

    That Donzi was Faulkner (aka BlingBling),i'd rather be boating around tight quarters,narrow channel with him than many others i've seen in alot smaller boats.

    I am at a loss here, the drivers of "CRC" and LickThis are some of the better drivers in the
    country in my opinion and are very aware of their surroundings. Something that cannot be said for many drivers that have regular boats.

    As for the length problem that many are complaining about in the Moabi channel, OK they are a couple feet wider than some but if everyone is single file in and out, there is plenty of room for everyone no matter how crowded it is.

    As for the wake problem, when those boats are on plane, they put off much LESS wake than any v bottom and ten times less than any wakeboard boat.

    I personally don't have a problem with any of them being up there. And let's face it, after
    the newness of the Pirate Cove thing wears off, you won't see them there as often. That
    must cost them a couple hundred just to get there from Windsor.

    We were passed by both boats up river on Saturday and I could not have felt more at ease. Both under control of professional drivers and both traveling at a VERY safe speed. I have no complaints.

    Ok, i have the answer to this question....i wish i was a little bit taller, i wish i was a baller...etc..i just like goin to the shallow water and lookin at zoomies and hydro's and shyt..the big stuff does nothing for me personally..especially when peeps in the shallow river are running more power than most of those boats, and doing so in a 350lb hull. That being said, i don't support any banning of any sized boat cuz they are amazing, and people with money should be able to show it off..this is america damnit! lol

    The fact is, havasu and even parker has gotten too hairy for us non-ballers to boat comfortably on the weekends.. and it's not because of wake board boats. it's 40' boats buzzin by at 100 plus doesn't make for a fun trip across thelake in a jet boat..but that's life so i either hop on someone elses boat when i go to havasu, or go during the week. NOt whining about it, just a sign of the times is all.

    EDIT: Yes, i am jealous of you guys with the big boats, and if i win the lotto i'll be standin on the throttles in a 38' somethingorother at havasu also LOL

    Ever think about some counceling?

    Yes, I am old school as well. I grew up in an era where a 24' boat was an "offshore" boat, and 18' was the norm. However, I also realize times have changed.

    Thowing a sterotype (pardon the expression) out there on guys with big boats is just dumb. So how did you hear their "shit music" through the canopies? I doubt the MTI even has a stereo...lol.

    As for the wakes, I almost had my old boat sunk three times by wakeboard boats (which are 22'-24'). So should we outlaw all 24' boats and bigger with towers because you don't klike their wake and music? lol...
