The last time I saw it was in Key West at the Worlds.
The boat had some hull damage and some how word got to Don Johnson that I was at the race to make glass repairs.
They came and found me, and I was escorted onto the BASE where it was being kept.
I got up inside, crawled to the bow of the boat and made my inspections. By the time I came back out, his crew was still in the works of flying the people in from Miami that I assume built the boat.
Once I came up on deck, that was when they told me they were flying a crew in. At that point I wished them luck and started driving off the base. Until I was stopped by a black mini van with all blacked out windows. It was Don himself asking me if I could help him out. My response was that his crew had everything under control..
I saw them in the morning of the race with heat lamps trying to get the epoxy to cure. When I saw Don at the driver's meeting he said the boat would be ready.
And it was...
That boat was wicked fast back then once light on fuel.
but like in NY, Don liked to put the hammer down right from the very beginning of the race straining the powerplants.
NyY he had a hell of a lead on everyone, but only to break down before the race was over...
That's my story and I am sticking to it.....
