Have you ever tried to drive your boat without the cruise control? I used to pride myself on my precise driving skills in the days before speed control, but now that every new boat has the nifty feature,  I seem to have lost my touch. Rob Jacques was not happy when the speed ranged from 18 – 26 as I towed him manually in this particular experiment. I'm sorry Rob, but do you have any idea how hard it is to drive a boat and send an email from your phone all while sitting in the passenger seat of the boat so the wake is even? Maybe technology IS smothering today's society? Gotta go, I just got a text message and nip tuck is recording on Tivo.
