I'm fairly sure the boat is parked on a trailer at Erikson Marine in Austin Tx. I think it is getting re-powered with a couple of big turbines.

I think that boat behaved itself much better in clean water and DJ felt safer out front. Richie Powers knows better than to push a heavy boat to the max right away. Actually I liked that strategy because when that cat was on 3 engines, INXS could scoot right past!

It was wicked fast, even in the "real worlds" held at AC, NJ the Trump World Championships in 10-12' waves. Don was running real well early, then broke. I had him under tow for about 30 minutes until he got it fired up and he went in under his own power. He even invited me aboard the "Trump Princess" after the race for drinks to say thank you...
