Keep in mind that every one of our boats had GPS and our GPS was reading easily 3-4 MPH over the posted radar speads. (We heard every boat that had GPS was reading more on their GPS than the radar so we know that we had faster actual speeds!) We also had way way too much fuel in them as mentioned earlier and it was 100% Humidity and hot! We ran the snot out of the boats and had a blast! We had a 6th boat to run and we probably would have won that one too but we just ran out of time. We only ran on Saturday since we felt we posted enough speed to win all classes we entered and we did! All in all it was a lot of work to run that many boats but it was worth it at the end of the day.
Two of the best parts about this whole thing was first, after I ran my 48EC with the Yanmars and Arnesons, I got a standing ovation at the end of the track from all of the Cruisers in line. They were in awe with the rooster tail. Secondly, I was there to accept all 5 of the trophys and it was broadcasted on TV and when I went to the store this AM the guy behind the counter was like Hey.. your that guy from the TV that won all those awards. That was COOL AS HELL!

Congrats Daryl!!!...It was great talking to you at the OSO/Dog Days Party... would love to hitch a ride in the 48 someday.

Impressive #'s considering full fuel (especially the 42' w/ 850's!)
