I remember Eddie Hill. What boat did you run? You guys are insane I raced offshore but I'd never get into one of those.

Unhappy

We used to race drag boats as well. I remember when Eddie Hill went 229 on only 7 cylinders.

It was crazy back in the day with no capsule boats. 1984 was a very bad year
