â†µToday, Steinz brings the world the new 48-foot boat belonging to Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. It's every bit the outsize vessel one would expect from a man of his stature and wealth. â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥"Honestly, it's a great, great boat," [Haynesworth] said. "I need bigger props and it will be all right--we were running 155 mph on the rev limiters all day with 38-inch props. If we had 40-inch props we estimated it would run 163, 164. I love the way it rides. I love the way it handles. It's lighter than Hellraiser (Haynesworth's previous 44-foot MTI) It's a badass. I'm actually going to keep this one for a few years." â†µâ†µ
â†µThat's good to know. Given his diminished production in the 2009 season, it's not likely Haynesworth will receive another $100 million payday like he did this past year. It's also good to know he's sticking with the prominent flame and skull motif from his last boat, which apparently netted him a few awards. Because if you own a badass boat, someone will walk up to you and hand you a trophy. Try it sometime, it works. â†µâ†µ
