EPIC: Full Plane Bitches

Fair enough,  the poster who originally posted the vid was from Florida so it wasn't totally clear.

The dukes of hazard's charger was of course named after the controversial General, and has the controversial flag on its roof. These aspects of the show are worth making a big deal about (in my opinion) but are better not to just whitewash over either.

I hear you and understand your viewpoint . The owner of the boat was probably like me and watched the show as a kid , blissfully unaware of the civil war history . When I think back now I see the car and daisy dukes cleavage !

Seriously you don't think people in the south find it objectionable?

Or do you just limit your definition of people to those who don't find it controversial?

correct

Pretty sure that Dark Night is from the south.  

Southern hemisphere that is!

What has been forgotten is that the GL had the Daisy Duke and her jeans shorts factor..

Then there is the fact that the car inspires girls to dress in a certain way.

I was a teen when that show started on TV and the General Lee was doing on TV the car equivalent of those full plan bitches..

I was a big fan of that show too as a kid.  I had no clue about the racist underpinnings of that symbol.  Now its pretty cringe.

I watched as a kid...

Saw a Jay Leno's Garage episode the other day that had the lead stunt driver from Dukes of Hazard. He said they ruined hundreds of cars (of course, none of them were real chargers) and set a new standard in hollywood. Biggest problem was the driver's broken backs!!

Above was probably one of those back breaking stunts...

I heard the whole rear trunk was solid concrete to keep the car in total balance on its mid point.

Maybe it is just the angle of the camera but the amount of deflection in that sprit is carazy!

fan, you are right. it's not the angle of the camera. I'm sure murphness will be along at some point to corroborate that the sprit looked obscene at times.

It's incredible that it hasn't snapped, but it's basically a carbon telephone pole. I've seen it curved like a banana at times.

Man I miss that hum!

There's a good reason why you get the offwatch to sleep feet forward when the boat is lit up.......

Long been a golden rule for the French Multi scene. Do not need to add to the clusterfuck of post wipeout, collision or whatever, by having to deal with injuries and suspected concussion.

Mini 650, nice. What's up with not tilting the outboard out of the water?

it's a short leg, so just lifting the bracket is enough to get it out of the water.

Since most of the ones I know have already been posted, I'm going to contribute with one of my own creation.

It's 2 years old, but just decided to upload it now

obviously we've sailed the boat much faster , but still speeds in the teens in little to no wind isn't a bad way to get home after a race :)
