tom, Ill be looking forward to those pictures.
craig, I have seen you type invoices, this must have really gotten you going.
I need to come to Scot's defense. I have talked to him in length about the laps before the accident. Every lap they tried something different i know it was agonizing for them to start backing off. They were talking about pulling off when the accident happened. I was in the helicopter trying to wish them to stop. We had come a long way in a short time to give up. Scot and Jim desided to keep going hoping for a desent finish. I watched them getting deeper in trouble by backing off.They got into the rythm of the swell. They ended up running the outside line not the inside were it was smoother. I don't think that is running stupid.
When you come back by California stop for more than 1 day, we should have some toys put together for you to destroy. We need your opinion on how a six speed box is in a boat since you had a first try at our 2 speed back in 94. i can still remember looking back at Hardy and Walt hanging onto the fuel lines in the back of Riques 32. That was fun.

Sorry Pat, perhaps Stupid was to strong a word, I was really referring to the way way they started that race, as Key West rookies they needed to give the course some respect on the first lap, that first turn was a crash waiting to happen the way they drove in and I was there watching!
Give Coby the best of luck from me, I will break out my Kidstuff tee shirt for the weekend!
As for testing, check with Rique I may be up for a couple of weeks next month, lunch at Cappys?

Thumbs up

When I was looking at getting into offshore racing, I talked to everyone I could asking advice, experience, opinions and so on. He may not remember it, but I talked with Mr. Archer quite a few times about various boats, equipment and potential configurations. Every conversation was a world of information, but I was new to the sport and wanted to ask questions of anyone who would talk to me. Funny thing was, the more I talked with other people involved in racing, the more I realized the amount of respect held for Mr. Archer in the offshore racing world. Considering the egos in offshore racing, that impressed me.
So, Mr. Archer,
It's great to see you on the board. I look forward to meeting you in person some day.

That reminds me of the saying:
