I remember a thread a while back when there was talk about a speed run. The first thing everyone wanted to do was hook up with each other with their boats and go watch.
Now can you imagine how long they would have to wait for the water to lay down if it ever would after so many people showing up...
As much as I would like to be there myself on the shoreline, I can understand why there is no announcement of when it is taking place.
I was worried for the people in NC when that run was taking place. How everyone lines up on the beach of that campground, God forbid if a competitor threw a blade or some other equipment failure causing the boat to hook in the direction of the spectators....
As long as the Sanctioning Offiicials are there, and everything is done the way it should be, I don't see any problem with that....
Is that all the info you guys got....pleeeeze...ok here is the skinney....and do not ask or get radical with me.....I was informed that Jt was pulling hard runs...boat was good totally stable at 160 and it was not stable up to 172....and for safety issues Bob teague pulled the plug on the operation due to unsafe conditions...... word has it that the mercs were producing over 2000 per side.......rumor has it that that the whole package is good for 190 when they figure out handling issue........Good day boys!
Maybe it's time for longer tabs...?
Facts Sally!!!!.....and who said it was a leak????....Jeeeeeze..this is why i do not post....i am sitting on way better stuff that this.....
