RE: Re[2]: Rendezvous - Car

Longest recorded...

There was a craze a while back in Miami/Biscayne Bay among the Good Ol' boys
of stealing a Miami Vice / Drugrunner Cigarette, and jumping the floating
mangrove islands. Some boys made it, some didn't. Try running a 38'
Cigarette w/around 1000hp at 70+ MPH at a floating mangrove island. Either
you jump it, or the outdrives kick up so hard they land in the cockpit, or
you weren't going fast enough and make like a dart in the dart board. Oops.
