    I guess that 10/20 Solice prop AND a Solice (I wonder if that is anything like a Solas) impeller are what makes it go 80 (and apparently back in time).

    There is one born every day in the village. The village Idiot.

    "CRANYS CARBS
    PISS..PISTIONS... "

    does that mean he took a "PISS" on the pistons before he put them on? Maybe the reason It does 80 is that his piss is magical, kinda like a teflon coating. Super slick and is colored yellow so you can see where you have applied it. Or maybe Its the cranberry carbs. Lol

    I sent him a message...just couldn't resist...

    "Make sure you edit your ad to read that it "does 80 GPS....on the trailer".

    Don't insult the experienced...or try to dupe the ignorant.

    Comprende?"

    It was on waterworld? Since the movie flopped, does this devalue the ski even further?!

    He didn't state in the ad if it's mph... maybe he's thinking kph!

    This is what I sent him:

    You do realize that Waterworld was released in 1995 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114898/), right? And, well, the boat is a '99, right?

    BTW, the name of the company is Solas and you can call it a prop, or call it an impellor but either way it is the same thing and there is only one on that model.

    You might want to specify that you were going 80 KPH on the GPS (though that is rather slow, actually) since XPLs rarely break 70 MPH even with serious mods. That is, mods that would cost quite a bit more than you are asking for this machine.

    But hey, if you can sleep at night with what you do, then who am I to judge.
