    I don't know about 20 years..........I remember being is Islamorada and watching some sort of major offshore boat racing. Now if I could only find the old snapshots (that's right ...snapshots) that were taken. I do remember Popeye's Offshore boat and being big...real big. At that time I was not into Offshore boating. But we were staying at my parents townhouse on was mid October 0f 1983

    So that makes it longer than 20 years ago and even then they had been going for a few years

    This boat broke a tie bar causing the crash.

Sad, the canopies save them form injuries but caused their demise.
