Wondering if there is any chance of getting over the dam with my Checkmate speed boat today?

With enough forward momentum you should be able to make it over the bridge. Just keep arms and other stuff inside the boat it's not too wide... Make sure motor not locked down that could be a problem :)

As long as you have enough speed and sack and the motor is set to pop up, you can do it!!!!!

That is a Checkmate Speedboat like he is talking about. I really don't think he is seriously gonna jump the dike in that. My suspicion is he is having a little fun with us, and so I ran with it.

And honestly, if he is really ballsy enough to do it, I just hope I get to see it happen... From a safe distance!!
