After watching that I realize why Jason wants one of those little chain steering wheels in his float....wait for it, wait for it....yep so he can finally use HIS furry little handcuffs for something besides the misuse of farm equipment and PETA "Advocates" ~T Luv ya J :cheers:

I was talking to Tony on FB and he had the GoPro in Camera mode, not video. He said he got a couple of blurry stills... :(

Had it been me, I would have had a few wet stills!!!! He's a hell of a driver but man that was borderline lucky good!!!!! I've watched a number of his videos and am just in awe of his talent!
This is one of my favorites when Tony shows a guy how to drive his own boat!! Tony jumps in about half way through.

Just a little different looking attitude to that v-drive with a racer behind the "Loud Pedal"!!!

I didnt watch that vid...but I think I have seen it before. If I remember right the dude that owes/owned it scratched his head after tony made a pass with it. =) In his defense...that boat is new...and I am guessin stupid light. Looked like it stood too far up on the plate...then a little chine action tipped her over. I just wonder wonder what brand wheel barrel he uses to carry his testicles around with. :sign0068:

I believe Tony uses a "Studebaker Wheel Barrel" the same guys that invented the "Conastoga Wagon" :zwhistle:

29 miles of shoreline CFW is a jewel for hotrods.

I shot the first video in this thread...it sucks the sun was in the background as it made it harder to see. Tony said when he came down after the initial jolt, his foot came down on the gas which helped him accelerate which straightened the boat out. He said otherwise he would have gotten wet. I agree that a lessor driver wouldn't have saved that.
