I’ve occasionally thought that a glitter bass boat could be a reasonable purchase, if you fish bass, and like to water ski. Not at 100 though. I have skied at 50, and that is challenging enough. Not even fun.
Billy needs one.
I‘ve watch guys on the river with overpowered sleds hit hidden sand bars. Fortunately no one has gotten hurt. I wonder how much speed had to do with it. My sled might do thirty, thirty five downstream with a tail wind. Plenty fast. All speed does in a fishing boat is get you in trouble quicker.
Speed on the water is way more relative than land. In our local rivers, 30 is usually way too fast. On a lake, hard to solo ski at 30. On a go fast boat in the sound, barely on plane. I was lucky to fish on 2 different 58' limit seiners in SEAK that could log an honest 10kts, 11.15 mph. Lot's of guys said they could, but most were left in our wake, none ever passed us. Watching another boat only ONE mile away on the radar, if they had an emergency, it would take us SIX minutes to get there. You know because you've been there.
