Hey that's pretty cool - what will you use it for? Racing? Fishing?

Its a fresh / saltwater fishing...

Thats all I will be using it for...

As for where I sleep and shower... I already have a 2800 square foot house which cost my wife and I a MINT!

I don't see a hydrofoil...

What good is a boat if you can't decapitate people on jetskis?

Lies.

I have a box full of mints and they wouldn't let me buy a cardboard box, let alone a house :(

Nice boat btw but I have 2 questions.

Does it F@ld? And does it blend?

Even if it had a hydrofoil, it wouldn't decapitate saz's midgets...

I am dead beat Tired...
I went to Crooked Lake today and the pattern for todays 89 degree water NEVER changed my buddy Melvin and I caught 9 fish... ALL of them the exact same way: Using a 1/2 oz weight and punching through the grass matts...
Largest of them was 2.25 lbs my largest was 2lbs, didnt take any pics because we thought we would catch better because we started out with two in the first 20 mins...
Oh well...

M, do you drive a Ford Exploder?

:eek:



My first thought too. He must be a girly man, and must provide pictures of nakid wimmin with beer on said boat to prove otherwise.
