Air Time,

Not that I don't respect your perspective, but I'm at a loss to understand it. How did SBI and OSS screw up? Isn't part of their job to enforce their own rules. If the boat was illegal last year in SBI and ran that way, yes they (SBI) did screw up in not catching it. But how did OSS screw up? They caught it. Perhaps later than they should have, but they caught it.

Ultimately, even if the team was lied to, compliance is the team's responsibility. Not saying they were or weren't lied to, but the responsiblity for their equipment being legal is theirs.

I'm at a loss. Enlighten me.

What Can I Say Since They Caught It Later Than Sooner The Team Should Keep There Winnings Up To The Last Race. The Team Thought They Had A Legal Boat? I Feel As If I Got Screwed A Couple Years Ago In A Race I Was In. And When My Health Is Back I Will Only Race Opa But It Does'nt Look Like This Year.

I see what you're saying, though I'm not sure I agree with it regarding the winnings. My guess is that the team, which has a strong reputation for integrity and sportsmanship, probably doesn't want them. Just guessing.

But I don't immediately disagree with your take, either. Have to give that some more thought.

And actually, Fever Mike, learning about cymbals and such was pretty fun. I learned a whole lot more about them than about this sorry mess.
