Damn, a 24' w/710 Illmor! I bet that thing is scary fast!

21' (I think) Concord. The boat rode so bad that the bottom came apart. I built a motor for one and took it out for a test ride. There was 1-2' waves and the boat chine walk and porpoised so bad the bottom blew apart. I barely got it back to the trailer before it sunk. One of the worst phone calls I've had to make.
By the way, the boat hauled ass before it broke.
Eddie was it a red boat? The back part of it delaminated.

The worst I ever felt after a race was a 29' Fountain F1 boat, Corpus Chritie, Tx a few years back.

Yes i am from the parish. My name is jason lay. That was my cousin tony's boat he bought from texas. He wanted to buy mine but at the time i did not want to get rid of it. I believe he still has the motor and all of the hardware, every time i see him i try to buy some of it.
