Thanks!

Tim......

I see the question has already been answered by Ben....thanks Ben. I think these ORO people are the same group that tried to do this Miami to New York race last year or the year before.

I don't know anything about them one way or the other. I hope they are successful in their efforts, I think this kind of publicity would be good for the sport overall.

Congrats to both the Outer Limits and Donzi teams. It is great to see them out there competing on a world stage in big water. Now if we could get the rest of the builders to follow, we could really make these boats the pride of America.

One question though, and its not to start any BS but how many boats race at these events? If I'm right it seems like promotion is more important then boat count.

Usually about twenty but they all run together. Fifteen started in Malta. Guess the rest will make it by the next race.

lol Glad I could help

I think it's going to be one interesting season if the boats listed show up...

By the way Lou... from the look of it, I'd say Donzi is not completely out of racing at home just yet, so you can put the deportation request to Bush on hold for now

Example 1. Redline Racing - Donzi 38 ZR Competition - SBI -
Driver - Phil Boukather
Throttles - "The Legendary" Chris Gatturna
3/30/07 St. Cloud, FL Placed 1 -
4/20/07 Miami, FL Placed 2 -
http://www.superboat.com/teams.cfm?a...ail&teamID=198

Example 2. Donzi "Official OSS Paceboat" - Pickwick
