What a great time !! LOTO is really the place to be if you have a hot boat. It's like Miami and cars...everyone's got a killer ride and it's usually full of talent.

The Princess learned a lot our first year running LOTO and we can't wait to be back. We clocked a 174 MPH pass and are still accelerating very hard. All of you know its a standing mile with a "just above idle" start. so don't misinterpret the speeds as any of the big boats real capabilities. Just "drag strip " capabilities.

It may look flat ...let me tell you as you cross 150 it dosn't take much to get it out of shape. Big kudos to my T-man (Scotty B)for getting her back into shape.

Ratman, just remember everyone has a tough days. Racing these boats at 170 + MPH in a constant acceleration mode is extremely stressful. Give the guy a break he's out putting his life on the line with a brand new untested MISSLE. He has alot of responsibility to make these boats go fast. Were all human. Please consider revising your remarks with this in mind. Bud Select team is a great benefit to the Sport of Offshore . Your call.

Huge Thank you the people of LOTO!!!! Also, Randy Kent (party), Callen/Cosker (guidence) Schism (props),Nortec guys (swim support), Volunteers (putting the show on), Dave Scott and Team Budweiser Select for their hospitality and support this weekend.

You guys did just fine

You didn't break anything, you didn't tip it over,
