Lol....... im probably using an illegal soap box anyway, epa probably banned my brwnd of soap because something in it was found to cause cancer in lab animals in California so it has been regulated off the market , so im gonna bet using my soap box more than likely makes me an outlaw and a Polar bear!

I noticed the same thing, even though the skids have to lift the weight of the craft the friction on the water is so much lower that it planes out nice once it gets its maximum lift, engine sounds like its running easy...... that would be lots of fun buzzing around in a big ole stock tank, have two or three of them out there and mark off a course will some floating markers and have a race .......

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
