When your time is up your time is up.
Go live life to it fullest and get the most out of it Because you never know when your time is up.
Yes, a life can be taken in a million defferent ways. The difference is when you push the envelope your chances of dying are greatly increased. Thats why there are speed limits on the highways. Its much easier to avoid a unexpected object on the highwway at 50 mph than at 150 mph. If there were no speed limit on the roads, how many more deaths do you think there would be?.
We race because we love it, its our passion and we know the dangers before us. Yet we continue. Look at all the crashes and fatalities in boats over the last 12 months . Pretty scarey. Some are because of ignorance and some with the best drivers and throttleman and all the safety gear. Its gonna happen.
If your loved ones dont want you to do it and make you the ultimatum, you have one hell of a decision.
If I loved a woman enough to marry her, and she said "racing or me", I would take her. Knowing how hard it is to find the right person.
Offshore Racing will always be there in one form or another. It can wait. Enjoy your life with your fiance and maybe, someday, she'll change her mind.
Good luck to all the teams this weekend and
God Bless all the families and friends of those who have been taken from us.
Be safe not stupid.
