BUT, you still did it. You da man !!!
I did it at the dock the next morning, and all I heard was the girls laughin about me doing a headstand between the engines with my azz and legs in the air. At least the pipes were cold.

You snooze, you loose Pal. Let this be a lesson to you. We expect eternal vigilance from ''Saftey Brian".

Hey what can I say, I had a date, with a girl , and It wasn't an inflateable one. I'll be out this weekend and he'll be gone so I'll regain my spot if needed.

You are not really serious with these Skater posts are you? How did a 39 MTI (actually 37' hull) stay so close to to 46 Skater? Bruce Bullock was also running very hard in the 368Skater. Why did the 42 and 44 MTI's hang back? It really depends on what kind of ride the driver and passengers wanted. Throttle/Driver skills are a really big factor in rough water. If the 47 race Fountain (cat killer) was running there is strong chance it would have been in front with Shogren and Wyatt at the helm. Jim has an incredible boat and knows how to drive that big 46 Skater in the rough.

Great question. I have never ran in that type of water and since that was my first run I was a little cautious. Hey I admit it. And in the morning I believe we were third to the first card stop and the second. Hats off to Jim and Brandon for busting balls. All of our (E Dock) boats started toward the back. No excuses but the fact is the boat could handle more than me that day. I'm just trying to catch up with the technology (no pun intended). Scott
