The bat boat belongs to Curt Watkins. He also owned "The Switch" Super Vee the bat boat is the nicest one around completely done by Rick Turmel and Steve Schmidt.

Jayboat ....sorry we never caught up......you must have just missed our acrobatics on lap one right in front of you. We hit on comming out from under the bridge. Put it on it's side for 100 yards, ripped off a cowling and hatch and continued on. No trim and alot of water.....

Ryan- I saw that out of the corner of my eye. There were three work boats that were blocking my view of that area coming out from under the bridge. There was a lot of stuff happening on the first lap, plus I was trying to adjust to that little cork I was on- took a few minutes to get settled into a rhythm. Sorry I missed your tricks! A lot of boats were catching big air coming out from under the bridge, but I couldn't see em because of the blockage, especially that big fat searay.

Here's a good sequence of the boat that gives a good idea of the day's water conditions.
