I got tired of watching at try number 5 or 6 and was sorely tempted to offer to take over the helm and put it up for them. It seems most of these officers have little experience handling boats....
A little addition this, the boat in your post is a 39 Midnight Express as well, seems this is what they are buying and running in addition to the big ribs as well. I ran one of these in Miami at the boat show about six years back, it is a tremendously well built boat and can run really well in the slop. The one in your post, does it have quad 225 Mercs? I would imagine they are equipping them all the same and that company is making a ton of money! One of my friends talked to one of the guys (H.S.) who said that the rib, which has triple 225 Mercs was like being in a salt shaker, that it was too rough a ride.. Huh??? Must be tough to suffer like that in that nice a boat...
