Ya sure , Bob!
Actually - you have no idea what your own boats' AVS is. You, the "designer" have to rely on others to come up with a number. Then you want to "improve" even that. Remember when you said it was 183 degrees?

When you try to mock Bob in these areas you really confirm the fact that you're a clown, Brent.
