Not to be an aviation snob but there are a lot of planes that resemble the Icon A5. From the ground you'd be hard-pressed to determine something is an A5 vs some other pusher-propeller seaplane....

Crazy things.... I have a couple:

The worst that comes to mind was a pontoon boat that almost killed one of my best friends.

I hope more boats can come back to this sort of elegance. I'm sure it's going to happen I just don't know when.
I really like this and wish the $150,000 "boomerang starship armored tank santa...

Not underrated - I've liked almost all versions of the B-52 going back as long as I can recall (2002? or so?). That has always been a boutique kind of boat but certainly an awesome model and a solid...

I am possibly biased too but you're quire right. If you want a boat that will provide the wake you/we need and will be a nice ownership experience, the Ski Nautique 2001 is exactly where to start....

Even when I made the original chart I was SUPER conservative. The boats you mentioned were out by then. MB, Sanger, Calabria, both Epics (Toyota Epics and Chris Anthony's Epic Boats). I left them off...

As much as it hurts to say it, absolutely don't hold your breath on Nautique ever doing anything close to a budget boat. No no no. In fact signs I've been seeing say they could be moving toward...

It has been like this for absolutely ever. The next 180 etc. Increased rotations, double flips are factors of the big new boats. Progression seems to be wholly dependent on what a 17yr old's knees...

I find them so attractive. They're more classic than hell, and as time goes on they're still one of the best boats available, period. I advise people still to only put Flight Control Towers on them,...

I actually think sites like this will return in popularity, big time. I'm sure things have been trending down in the past 5-10 years but I'd also bet in the past year or so, when people started to...

In a sense it's my fault. The hack that occurred wasn't easily reversible and was basically done with the most malicious intent possible. I cleaned up something like 10 of 20,000 threads and it took...

500-600 lbs I meant to say, in back. That bag up front cannot be under-estimated - it makes a huge difference.
This is the dialed-in combination around which I built the enclosuresand the rest of...

I read this and my soul died a little. I'm so sorry, still, that this happened and I couldn't restore it.

Hi there! Any boat is going to start to wash out at that speed. I had a 210 and 2 x SN 2001's and even with minor with ballast weight I don't think I've ever seen a peaky wake at less than 20mph....

It makes me really really happy to hear that. Even is it is "secretly" looked at, criticized, challenged. I love it.

Tinted windows on a boat is one of the dumbest things ever to happen on these boats. I could make a list but that'd be up there. Even if it looks cool it is so ridiculous to think that you'd want any...
