Come on, don't mix apples and oranges. And besides, this thread is not going to the dogs. Those numbers are real. I drove most of them myself and many more that perform the same. However comparing those boats last year, with other boats that are larger and have bigger loads run recently with mods is apples and oranges. Point is, the 35 Sport is a runner with or without a load. A lot of people rode in those boats this past month including the Poker run. They were impressed in and out of the large boats. Frankly, running at 4,000 feet most of the time, I was too. Can you imagine how those 35s would run on one of those performance skiffs. The fastest motors I saw at the Poker run were two last year model 29 Kawi and Van HDs on small two man boats, one a skiff. Our 35s on those large boats could hardly keep pace. But then again, apples and oranges. Funny thing is, I don't know why you posted the jab at those guys, you know this stuff.
