Well said Charley .
Yep, we will worry about the FAST boats !!We will be bringing alot of very fast boats but making sure that they can finish will be the hard job !
Remember ,it,s only 100 miles ,Right??

If i remember right ,in the late 80,s there was a race to Nassua,and back to Miami.The fastest boats were beat by a Magnum !The slowest boat filled with 18 people drinking champagne arrived 1st.
All the fast cats and vee,s lost to a boat that didn,t even run 70 mph .

Forget about 20 years from now. With the average attention span and lack of historical perspective of most performance boaters, 2 years from now 50% of them will think Don Aronow was in this race............ and, of course, presume that Reggie Fountain won it......
