    A slight cheat as it was on D3Bs boat "Stilldunno" off of Oostende with my crew at the helm

    I may be wrong but not always

    If you insist. Here I am breaking the speed limit wide open - 7 gps knots over the river bed. Hope no one tells the Police.

    45 squids an hour!!!
    Nope. 45+ Gallons an hour.

    Depending on where you buy your fuel, I reckon it'll be nearer 300 per hour.

    That would make your raggies cry into their drink.

    Bloke on the next pontoon to me has got 2 x 300hp Verados on his 10 metre Cougar.

    Fuel consumption on that would make your raggies cry into next week :-)

    But don't it bring a tear to your eyes as well? It would make my eyeballs bleed!

    Look at it like this.

    It's cheaper and probably (though I can't definitively confirm this bit) more exhilarating than a night with Sophie Anderton, and the Mrs. can come along & enjoy the hoot aswell.

    Whatever rings yer bell mate! I much prefer the peace and tranquility of sail myself, but I know it's not for everybody. Being retired, I don't have to be anywhere yesterday, and that's kind of nice.

    Funny, I can't see the exciting part of the rooster tail per se, but I do see the satisfying side of the equation - namely, speed.
    Surface transmissions/props are the most efficient system known to mankind for going fast on the water.
    If you think anyone would fork out the dosh necessary for these equipment just for the sake of some show off, you obviously don't know how expensive they are...
