Default Point Pleasant Race

Thanks to the great guys at AMF Racing, there has been a few of the old dogs invited to attend the Point Pleasant race in a couple of weeks.

AMF is bringing what they call, "The Legends of Offshore" to town for the event.

Rocky Aoki of Benihana fame, Billy Martin, Charlie McCarthy, John Bochis, Rich Luhrs, Jerry Gilbreath and for you Apache fans, Bobby Saccenti will be there too.

Looking forward to seeing the many fans of open ocean racing and possible HORBA members too !

Thanks for giving me the heads up over the weekend.

I was going to drive to the races but now I think I'll be taking the boat.



Sak, get out of the Apache section, go back to the OL dumpster section.

Races were great, it was great seeing the two Apache's as pace boats.

I had a chance to speak with Bob for a while and it was good to finally meet him.

Another believer.......

Run that machine with some of these new 100 mph potato chips in some real seas and you'll be the one smiling.

BUT, the conditions out there yesterday are what it's like all summer.....

Hey Bernie,

I have a bucket of cleaning supplies in my cabin, in the corner, on top of the counter. It's full of all kinds of stuff...spray nine, greese off, boat soap, never dull, salt away etc.....

The bucket has been on the counter top all summer, not strapped down and it has yet to fall over or break any of the bottles... In including 4-6 ft. seas on our way to Patchogue two weeks ago.

Only thing that sucks is we all need to run some power to make them move.....but in the end I'm happy when I get back to the dock!

Hear you talking Bernie! We've only owned our '89 41' Apache for a little over two weeks, but it's the best riding boat I've ever been on!

Panther's right, all the stuff sitting on the side and in the V-Berth stays where it belongs.

It's truly an amazing ride, and we've had many of our friends tell us the same thing.
