Agreed, Trulio is a great writer and a great person. I've had the pleasure of boating with him (even pulling the beached Formula he was on off of a sand bar in the Delta near Discovery Bay). He wrote and article and was kind enough to leave the entire beaching incident out...I was first on the sandbar and followed by no less than 5 other boats...I guess I led sheep to the slaughter!! One boat, a Profile was so high and dry it was almost lying on its side...the tide had to come in quite a bit to get it floating again...but it did.
I'd like to see Powerboat start reporting more on what brands of boats are winning the offshore events...most people know what boat is what, but I think it's moronic not to report the brand of boat next to its place in the race stats. Imagine if NASCAR didn't report the brand of car that was racing...fans are loyal to their brand and that's what they follow as much as their favorite drivers.
