    a big thanks to WaterGremlin and Mike for the filming...You guys have the tough job of trusting me not to pitch you out of the boat while you're starring at the tiny little screen...

    The video looks much better on DVD. So good my daugther has been watching it for almost an hour straight. It was definately an interesting trip I just wish that was my boat we were pushing on the flats instead.

    Just curious...does that Phantom ES take a beating from rocks pretty well? I looked on their website, and the hulls aren't as thick as I thought they would be.

    Just wondering what your experience has been?

    It is not a Phantom....I chose the Jetcraft 2175, for the same concerns you are expressing.....3/16" bottom instead of 1/8"..and no, the bottom looks great so far...we'll see after next summer.......I'm sure the Phantom would perform very well, I just like the thought of a 50% thicker bottom....

    Default cool

    You going back out? See if it slides over ice? That looks like fun. Bet you could sell rides. I sent it on to the guys at the Boat Shop just in case they had not seen it.

    I just watched the video with my 5 year old and half way through he said "are they going to shoot anything"? Cool video. Cool kid.

    My son "Gunner" was glad to see you didn't burn all that gas and not get any shooting in. Nice ermine.
