Chicago- Detroit is a great one and one that is at the top of our list.

NY-Miami is one we could aspire too but we need to build up to be able to attempt that type of run. Quite an acomplishment just to finish.

Don't forget the Tampa-Miami run and the Toledo, Ohio to Buffalo New York runs!

I had the pleasure of being crew chief/navigator on the 46' Cougar "Spirit of America" when we broke/set these records as well as the Miami-Nassau-Miami in the late 1990's. I also had the honor of the recently passed Kevin Brown as a member of our riding crew.

All of our records had been sanctioned by the APBA. The Florida records have since been broken by Nemschoff/Buzzi/Seatecs but Harry, Dave, Eric & I still hold the Lake Erie record.

I should still have my data from these runs in the archives if you need more detail. (charts, waypoints, on-board & aerial footage and ?)

Rich that would be wonderful. As far as we can find out the records have been lost. We're hoping to be ab;e to restore glory to those that deserve it as well as create some new excitement.

Godfather...That cruise would be nice in the CONDO!!!!!! Think we can fit a pair of turbines in it?

What is your range on full tanks? Give us an idea of you sprint run distance versus refueling. We can come up with some cool ideas.

Circles are fun for a racing series. But a Cannonball Run annual race is needed to excite everyone at once.

The Miami- Nassau- Miami is the first one to come to mind. It has a lot of history with it also.
