I got half way home and realized my right rear wheel/tire on the triax trailer was missing! Never found the wheel. Does that count???

Let me know if you find it. I have one that is still MIA from 2 years ago.


The Chicago PR damage report sounds like last year.

It sounded like a run I would like to attend, but that is some serious damage to some very nice rigs.....

Didn't hear about the 368 and I was in one, and hung out with the other one all weekend???

OU Want Some statement is very exagerated

The 46 Skater hadn't been run in years, I think it just needed the bugs worked out.

I did see a 382 that had a 3 or 4 foot long split between deck and hull though.

I will agree with the sore part, it was a little bumpy out there

I think the 382 they're referring to is the '05 "Inferno".

Was a great me and my crew were sore the next day. Not as sore as last year though. That run to alot out of you. But would not trade it for anything. Was a great time and the water was much better than last year.

Broke the starbord engine mount on the way to Chicago. Sure did get rough on the way to Chicago the morning run was so much better...

Inferno split between deck and hull for the second time. Mike drives the snot out of that boat, and Formula puts it back together for him EVERY time, no $$. Heck, he got the cover of Powerboat mag last year at the Chicago run.

The 40 Skater with the hole delaminated right in front of me just as we got to the Chicago card stop. Everybody was ok, they took the boat out at Burnham harbor in the city...11'6" beam, 11'8" ramp!!

On Friday I was out in a 38 Gun (Kool-Aid Man) and he ripped the front bolster in half!! Thanks to DeWalt and some heavier screws, he was in business again soon!
