Smooth move are pretty common I think. But the guys I boat with and the style of boating we do you don’t use the seats while driving, so haven’t seen many different ones.

I built my own based off the shockwave. Made the prototypes out of steel, once I get them dialed in I'll build them out of alum. Right now they are about 35# but the alum version will be closer to 15# or less. If you want to build a set I can send you the plan. Haven't tested them out yet, probably install them in a week or two.

I am also interested... I see we are close in location too!
Hey No Brakes, if you end up building some lets chat, i may take a couple. we can split the cost and get them done at BFs house while we sip cold ones and tell sled stories.

I live just off 50 st, about 4 minutes from the launch... a nice sunday is leaving there and heading up past Genessee bridge.

Nice! I'm about 20min from 50th and the Fort launches. Maybe I'll see you out there this year, I have a Explorer 186 w/6.2 that's bright green, pretty hard to miss lol.

hahahaha I bet she's a loooong day at 30 MPH, looking forward to the new HP!
I can get up there and back on a tank if I keep it out of the secondaries! she cruises 45-50 mph at 3800....

At 30mph that sport jet would be burning about 14 gph. Got to keep it at 25mph so it’s around the 10.5gph.
