I think the cat actually won the second day but was penalized for going too fast. that's great racing when you gotaat hold back or you'll go too fast.......

I am glad to see the boat out of storage but I know the boat and have run the boat with the previous owner Eddie Toth and the boat is a P2 Boat to say the least and will eat up some big water.Put the boat in the correct class as well as some of the other boats that are running in the wrong class and you will see a little better results.

Thanks Steve and Rob. I didn't have a clue how to post pictures. What a rush on Saturday! We were deck to deck with Catattack from the beginning to the last turn. Dennis pulled a turn that you would never believe and Tommy took it right to 91.6. We won by one second. Ryan, they actually broke out both days but we had know way of knowing during the race. They are great guys and we even brought them drinks both days.

Hyper, glad you know all. First off P-2 is a little fast in a non canopy boat if something happens. Yes Predator is fast and could be in another class. Dennis is doing this for fun and you only get a bowling trophy.

This new P class racing is a double challange. Not only do you need to stay as close to your maximum speed the whole course including the turns you have to be very careful of breakout. If you saw Saturdays race and saw how close we were, how tight we were turning, and how were going through the bridges, you would fully understand. Add in the flat water and we had our hands full. By the way there is no "right class" for the boat, this was a real race. It doesn't get much better.

Thanks to all who are following us and yes "old school rules"
