I was gonna say something about a race but figured we were running pretty hard as it was. I think you gave Rob and Kevin a pretty good initiation into the offshore thing! It didn't take Kevin long to want to move up from that Pantera!

Damage report to Pinkie:

8 missing screws popped from the rubrail.
Upper dash for gauges is loose again.
Toilet seat is off again.
Steering wheel folded over like a taco from a 2-story drop in to a hole.
Cabin door is loose.
1 seasick passenger and sore muscles for the rest of the crew.

I will have some tightening of all screws to do and check the motor mounts as the pounding was heavy. Mechanically she is sound and ready to go another round. A good time was had by all. I saw many a smiling face given the bleak conditions. Congratulations on a fabulous run Tank. And Happy Belated Birthday - Libra Bro.

Hugh
Jesus!! You were flying that thing long and hard!!!
I must admit, I did loose 1 seat screw!!
Thanks for the b-day wish Hugh, we missed you at dinner

LMAO, I was trying to post the few pictures I had.

But you have to admit that is funny. I actually took a picture of a birthday card my wife had to get that one. It kinda reminded me of someone.

Last One.

Tank you were skying when we first left the marina. It was an awsome sight.

I would have gotten a few pics but Hugh's competitive side couldn't let off the throttles.
