Jen, I'm not sure about getting a press boat. Apperently the press likes to stay on land for the race. Ask Toni or Sam.
I can probably get you on a turn boat but if you have a Sunseeker at your disposal, why look elsewhere.
I will tell you that the best air shots are taken at turn two. This is the southern offshore turn. At this location you get to see the boats as they run straight into the waves as they head toward the beach and the boats are heading offshore.
Go to http://www.sportsprobe.com and click on Powerboating and then the Manufacturers Cup 2001. All these shots were taken by Ike Levin from Turn 2.
That's the place to be regardless of which ride you pick.
You should take poor ole Puder with you. He seems to need a jolt of racing to get him through the tough times.
