Default New Kids in Kodiak

My son Zach (TJ), co-worker David (Razor), and their boss Cooper (Razor) of High Mark Marine here in Kodiak out playing over Memorial Day weekend. These young bucks have learned from and been inspired by the likes of myself, BGreen, Kodiak Dodge, Badco, Johnny Wichman, DougDanger, Brad Schwartz, Wild Bill and MANY others over the years. All of us "old timers" have managed to have a good influence on these kids. They work hard, and play harder. I'm having as much fun watching them as I ever having "getting it" myself. They make me feel old, yet alive at the same time!

The drone's camera doesn't do justice to the speed they're running. 60+ on the straight aways.

Check out High Mark Marine on Facebook & Instagram. These kids are GOOD!

Is that a manual control drone or is it one that follows a signal. Either way awesome video.

As much fun as I have wheeling, I can tell where my roots are..... Im watching this and imagining how much fun it would be under 6 feet of snow with a 175hp two stroke between my legs!!!!

Pretty sure it's manual. At one point in the vid you can see Cooper holding the remote on the beach. Controlling the thing manually to get this kind of vid is an art in itself.

Yeah, right? What a blast that would be!

This was pretty much a shake down run for the TJ. Performed awesome! Zach said by the end of the night he was passing the Razor's on the straight aways. Said he's ready for the V8, a 10" stretch and Ford 1/2 tons. He said, and I quote, "it was faster, handled better, and flew farther". Crazy little ****!
