Since this topic was brought up- Tom, what are those round things on the side of your console? Could they be temp and baro gauges?

Altitude and horizon indicators

When an aircraft leaves the ground, we have a term, we say the aircraft is rotating. Tom's boat is definitely rotating. Engine is on Total Rated Thrust (TRT).

I have no need for an 18 Outrage, but that picture makes me want to buy one.

Fortunately we can do that in any Whaler, no pilot license required:)

What you see is a twin compact electric horn. Being tucked just ahead of the console grab rail like that meant it almost never caught any lines, (fishing or otherwise). The rail would tend to deflect lines and clothing away fro it. It also put it very close to the horn button which is mounted at the base of the binnacle mount control and thus a very short wiring run.

GAwhale, actually the boat was moving at minimum planing speed, about 14 mph. (stall speed, flaps down, for you pilots out there) Anybody can run their boat at full throttle of a large power boat's wake and become airborne, but this day the waves were just kinda' throwing us up into the air. And rotating it was!

Yeah Man, Tom is really kick'in some empennage (the tail assembly of an airplane) in that photo.
