This "might" be the case, but did he really need to run 130-140 ??

Probably lack of knowledge, we race in so many places, I too have gone through no wake zones on plane by accident. Its touch to look at signs from a canopy. As far as their speed, Dave and John are the utmost professionals and would not bring her up to speed unless they were confident they had a clear safe pass

I wish you would have blown the Point Plesant Canal on plane in '06. I got stuck behind you for that trip. My food tasted like jet A for a week and my ears were ringing just as long.

We left Shooter's a bit before 5:00 Saturday. After clearing the fireboat marking the start/end of the no wake area for the course, we headed out towards home at the 4MM. After we had made the turn left at the corner where Land's End and Dog Days are, I heard/saw the Bud Select boat coming up hard off to port. Once they cleared the shootout traffic, they really lit her up and were gone! Quickly lost sight of them past the community bridge. Very cool!!
