    V-Drives
    I have a 19' Sanger family ski with the slight v in the back. Starts to porpoise around 50mph. I had the same issue with a previous boat (same exact style hull) and moving the prop back helped quite a bit. Never fully got rid of the hop in that one. Reading old threads has got me thinking about...

    Political Rhetoric
    I think it's a scam Irun ran out of money to finish their project and obama is all about hooking them up. They are muzzy, they are born and bred to hate up, to give in to obama and the sanctions is like groveling in the dirt to them. Did they forget about susnex already. It put the hurt on them...

    Political Rhetoric
    I'm starting to wonder if the only reason Obama hasn't pulled us out of Afghanistan (See our ROE dictated by him and then tell me why are we there, it's ROE of Failure.) is because gun control isn't in place before our large population of returning and decommissioned "terrorist risks", as...
