Default Boating!

Well, I had never given boating much thought until my brother decided to buy a boat. Little feller, tiny bass boat with an 80? HP Evinrude. 25mph feels like FLYING across the water LOL. Worst part is doing the ramp thing with his Blazer, 4 speed manual with no functional E-Brake and yours truly trying to 3 foot the silly thing up and down the ramp without killing the engine or rolling into the water too far.

I think this bug has bit me, but they are outta range for me currently :(

we have a 16.5ft fiberglass bass boat with an 85 "Javelin" Johnson on the back. Flat out on that is fast enough for me, I dont want anything much bigger in power when I get my truck and then enough money for a boat.
