And was always ready for those events, Mr. Dietz was fully aware of what he designed built and continued to improve over the years, which was one Bad Azz machine for a sole purpose and his true passion. We need more people like him back in the sport that are here cause it was the passion, it's in the blood, and there out there for the people and the times. (Not who's king of king's or flashiest etc.) Sad that he left for other reason's, those who met him or new him, would agree that he along with his wife Mary were and are some of the most humble, sweetest, and down to earth people. Rare find these days !!

Anyway's WickedWon was always maintained above standards! And is still one of the sweetest hard core boats out there. In my opinion, Mr.Dietz was bringing the standard back to what it supposed to be. Hardcore, built to take the punishment delt out by the waters encountered.

Heard a statement either by Mr. Dietz or by Saber regarding his boat. ( If it doesn't have purpose in the way that boat performs, then don't put it on the boat, cause it will only break in running conditions! ) Very True !

We still see Jim at Kelleys Island on Wicked Too now and then. Hopefully he will get the bug again and come back to offshore. BTW Parnell, how's the 47 Sabre coming along?

I saw a huge Cig at the Miami show with triple 850's. It was called a Maurader and I think it was 50'. They don't have it on their website so I don't know much about it, except it was beyond sick! If I had really deep pockets, I'd be hauling around in that with triple 1075's. But I don't.........my pockets are shallower than a Florida retention pond in Febuary

I had the pleasure of meeting them this spring at RHCs run.
Very nice people and saying Jim is Passionate about these boats is an understatement... ...Hated to see him sell WW....He had all 3 "wickeds" there and eveyone of them was flawless.
