    Also a side note, the USCG guys thought the 370 Venture was the coolest boat they'd ever seen. They all loved it once they figured out it was outboards. they all wanted to check it out and I opened the engine compartments for them to see. I also complemented them on their vessel.

    They thought the boat was cool but still gave you a gold copy? Maybe you should have had your Admiral negotiating with them. No offense to you, but she's better looking than you are.

    What rpm's are you setting the engines at for low speed maneuvering? Are those engines about the same width apart as an inboard powered boat?

    Thanks for all the pics. What a pretty boat in a pretty setting.

    Part of the boarding report that you keep to show that you were boarded. Generally if you are stopped in the next year after that, you can show the boarding officer your gold (or yellow) copy and they won't board you again.

    Given the pretty pictures that were posted of Richie's significant other, I would think that they would be stopped quite often.

    It seems that every time I am out with just the wife we get stopped too. I'm beginning to see a pattern...
