Any landing you walk away from is a good one. I saw it in person.
IT WAS A 6FOOT WAKE!!! Nice work Jim!

Good recovery!

Did it accelerate up to 84mph while the strakes were out of the water by any chance? :biggrin.:

Buizilla, sorry that I did not get to meet you at the show. I admired your boat from the dock and when you were running. I had the pleasure of hitching a ride on Berts Fino, definitely a highlight of our trip! Now it is back to reality and the cold weather of the midwest. Will summer ever come back to grace us with soft water?

It was a great show for sure. Maybe the best ever. Rain and all.
The rain just allowed us to get to know some great people even better.
Jim is a sport and a great boat driver I might add.

Jim's a pretty big guy....some ballast in the passenger seat would keep her straight in the air ! :yes: :worthy:

Quick 1/8th turn of the wheel to the left upon takeoff, that's what would help with the I/O torque steer.

this boat has ZERO torq steer, I mean ZERO :worthy:

offsetting ballast would be helpful though :kingme:
