Well,
1st off, my thanks to Dave Callan, and the Callan/Mystic crew for allowing me to EXPERINCE such an Adrenaline RUSH!
It was AWESOME!! We only ran 187 because there wasn't time to schedule any safey divers.

And the only problem of the day was a power steering pump belt broke!

And I have NEVER been in a boat that turned @ 140 MPH!!!

And Scott B. you were correct, I have never felt acceleration like that in my life!!

Counting down to LOTO!

Mike,
I guess I was just born lucky to have John Cosker @ Mystic powerboats as my best friend. I 've been involved with Mystic powerboats from the 1st day that JC started Mystic.

Good Morning Dean! Please have your wife take you to the doctor immediately. I believe you have eaten some Manatee that was way under cooked and have contracted a horrific mind altering disease. The problem was not a broken power steering belt, it was the lack of a steering wheel! See your picture above. Please do not operate any power equipment until you have been seen by a physician!

Hope you had a great time!
