I'll be in Pickwick for the OSS race. I'll be sure to take some photos.

Randy took the time to show me the anchor in the boat and the throttles and all the detail that went into creating this machine in Miami on the ladder. Whe I asked "How much", He said he kept calling the owner about the dollars invested and the owner just replied "keep going". I found that amusing. I think he said the throttles alone were $ 8 K.
