Re: Will a FS14 still plane with my weight?

My point is that not all mud drives are made the same. You can see from the picture I posted, a concrete street would not bother that mud drive. Well, not the prop any way. :lol:

Chart is nice but they were way off with Irma!
They are way off with a lot of them. But, it's a starting point. I have heard that predicting the weather is not an exact science. :lol:
