BZ,

Can't find it!!
Have you ever watched channel 37 at 10:30 Saturday mornings? Maybe you forgot about the footage of your boat running out of Chicago for the Powerboat Magazine & Mercury commercials!

Thumbs down

What a major crapola show!

More an infomercial than a show.

Helio shots are so far from the action, it could be a video game.

And zero sound . . . other than blathering talking-heads.

What a shame.

Those mopes need Phil Lewis to show them how it's done.

Great boats, lamo coverage.

Sorry if this offends, but these producers don't have a clue about how to cover offshore. This crap hurts the entire sport.

Take a look at the "Big Seas" production if you want to see how it's done.

Or Freeze-Frame, for more current stuff.

I have run a couple races and Orange Beach did not need a production company called "Big Seas". Between the the tempuratures at the race and the seas we were there.
You missed a great race...

Dammit I missed the replay by 32 minutes!

I haven't seen a big water race on tv since 2002!

We'll be selling the DVDs of this season for $19.95 each on the OSS web site. There's one DVD there now, the rest will be added soon.

Hope you enjoyed the show. I know a lot of boats got broken up on that run.

How long will the DVD's be? Are they only 30 minutes long like the ones aired for TV or will the complete race for each event be on the DVD.

Thanks.
