  • The Gale Force Twins just posted a video tour of the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show that is awesome! I couldn't make the show this year so I've been waiting for the pictures and videos to surface. What a show! The features that are coming with these center console boats are incredible.

    The girls showcase some new technology called e-Motion. This hybrid propulsion system will drastically cut your generator hours as well as your diesel motor hours. From 2000 down to 150-200 hours! Pretty awesome steps in clean energy use.

    The new announcement of the 46' Pilothouse from Invincible boats is unreal. If you are in a cold weather environment, this cat will make your life much easier. I love that Invincible boats pads their gunnels. I think more boats need to use a durable cushion or EVA foam on the gunnels. I think this should be a standard on most fishing boats.

  • Here's a pretty awesome video showing many of the different boats heading to FLIBS showcasing their speed and power through Haulover Inlet. MTI Lamborghini, Baja, Cigarette, Nor-Tech are all flying through the inlet. Its pretty cool to see these boats running rather than just floating. After watching this video, I thought to myself that its going to be a strange day if/when I hear electric speed boats cruising around.
