Thanks so much to the CPC and the whole gang in East Chicago last weekend. You were all excellent hosts, and I really enjoyed my weekend. BZ, DT42, Roger, Payton, MarkSmith, Jamie, 10x, MagicMedicine, Candyman, BoatFreak, it was great to meet/see all of you; and I look forward to the next time we can run again together.

After last weekend, if I ever build another AT, I think I am going to name it: "Hurricane Ditka"

I agree with your assessment of Poker Face. That boat needed a tail rudder and stabilizer as those props were turning more air than they were water. I have to hand it to Baja on that particular very custom boat; it does run well and it flies a lot.

Pretty damn good for raw footage.
Nice sights of downtown Chicago.

As with any object in flight, it's ability to fly is not as important as it's ability to have a safe landing. Obviously that boat is balanced very well.

That is a spectacular moment of air time captured on film.
