I've seen those on the tube...but, I didn't think they were that big. Any idea what they weigh?

Damn.  That's got to be at least a.................9,.......maybe 10 footer.
YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE
AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.

IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU HAVE AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.

for their size almost nothing. they also make very little wake, was wakeboarding a few weekends ago and had one pass me doin at least 60mph, hardley even noticed the wake.

friend of my dad nearly bought one a few years ago back in houston, had been captured by the coast guard and they were selling it for just over 50k. looked up the value of it, just under 250,000 bucks book value :yikes: and it wasnt one of the big ones, just a 50 footer.
