BLee Thanks for the kind words and right back at ya. You still own my personal best for fastest ride ever in your capable hands.
I was thinking the other day during a different thread about people going out in rough water ect and all you racers can surely attest to this. Even though I love going out in big waves I always have the opportunity to dial it back, change course and just in general push it as far as I am comfortable with considering my skills and my boat Racers dont have that luxury. They go in the direction they need to go regardless of the conditions as fast as they can and that can make big waves far more dangerous than the same waves we weekend boaters run. It gives every one of them the title of big balls champs regardless whether they are running 60-70 in smaller boats or 150 in the big dogs. Hats off to the skills all of you possess to make that commitment now and in the past.
As a side note, although I have never raced and never will I have met and watched a lot of racers and ask any of them that have ever raced on Lake Michigan, Huron and Erie and they probably have a story about the waves. Not a 133 feet mind you but fairly significant nontheless.
