Was out on my buddy's boat this weekend. Man, that's a lot of fun. Here are the particulars:
22-23 foot Scarab, smaller cigarette boat with a 454 big block - 450 hp, bloody fast and handles great. We launced into the air a couple of times. (Top speed 81 miles per hour) This thing looks totally money and garnered looks from men and women alike everywhere we went.
My question: when we launched into the air, it really felt out of control. Can accidents happen this way or do boats have pretty reliable landings? Launching is pretty fun and all, but I saw my life flash before my eyes a couple of times.
It was f*cking nuts anyway and a lot of fun. I don't think I'd ever invest though, boat = bring on another thousand ($$ that is)
