    The owner "JEM" put everything in motion to get her off the beach. Set up the cranes and the front loader to bring his boat as close to the street as possible.

    Once AMF was notified at the awards ceremony that progress wasn't being made, they swung into action with pulling their airbags from the turbine boats and intended to float it out and drag her back to the marina on their own. I won't soon forget how Marc Grannet stated, "Let's go get our boys off the beach!!!" as if he were set out on a mission. Suddenly things got put into a hold pattern, but Marc & the AMF Crew prepared anyway and brought the airbags over to the beach. Bill Purnell "Team Wanted" got involved whom which has quite a bit of influence within Ocean City. It wasn't long after a few phone calls that forward motion was being made and the boat laid to rest on it's trailer by around 10:30 PM with a standing ovation from the crowd and fans that watched over the entire process...
    Thats what team work and comradery can do,

    I guess it might be better than the salt water in all the eletrical system,gages,wires,motors etc?

    Thanks Sharky for the picks an explain<,,

    Hats off to Jay Muller For the way he handled the whole situation. It's real easy to get bent out of shape when things don't go well . especialy when you know your gonna have to pay a BIG fat bill to somebody also knowing there is no insurance. As far as Marc and the AMF crew they are just flatout good dudes. Billy WANTED as well.

    i'v never raced before , but i have to imagine that was quick thinking to head for the beach as soon as it starts listing to the side , gotta imaging it would been 100 times worse if you had stopped 100 yards offshore with the sponson lookin like that
