There are still things worth dying for and 1 of those things is freedom.

FYI, I was fortunate enough to drive a bridge boat. I believe it was 18 or 20 feet in length and about 7 feet or wider. I think it was powered by 150 hp. They are big and heavy gauge aluminum. But not heavy enough. Even with three batteries, two fuel tanks, and two 220 pound guys the boat felt like i was driving on ice in the turns. I think the design of the boat/hull is meant for a much heavier load at speeds over 25 mph. I will say there is not a more durable aluminum boat ever made. The quality, thickness, rivets, and overall design is literally bulletproof. The boat was so "slick" in the turns, I nearly put it into a levee. If you get one, you might consider having some sort of bottom fins welded to the bottom or a whale tail could possibly help. FYI, you could park a four door sedan inside the boat. :beer: good luck finding one.

That motor pushed the boat in high thirties to low forties.
