On the second leg, after the helo's refueled, we headed to Chi-Town. With a giant storm cloud downpouring rain, that was in the path to the big city, we took the long way straight north, got in front of the storm, and cut back west into the city. Jim Lee with Freedom US-1, the 46 Skater, was 1st to Chicago, and running right next to us most of the way, was the Merrit brothers beautiful new 42 Fountain 850 boat with Wyatt Fountain at the wheel. Sorry guys, we just had to step it up a notch to be first into the harbor. Followed by another Shogren 42 Fountain, and the Chi-Town Hustler cat with Mark Smith at the wheel.
Thank you Jim for offering me the open seat in your boat saturday morning. Any time you guys want to take a trip back up to Chi-town, I will gladly be your "navigator" again. LMAO We finally got a little "bumpier" water when we got close to the city, and Jim was able to show me how them big cats "air out". I can't wait to see the helo footage of us running, but the helo fell back after we passed the 125 mark. Hope you enjoyed your short tour through the city with me.
It was good having you on board Frank!! I'm glad we hit wave or two at the end of the run.

If you have a really cool pic, let me know. I need pics for magazines. So far I only got one and it was Running Hott. Too bad it was good for a different type of magazine.

Glad to hear everyone had a great time again. Sorry I couldn't stick around for the rest of the day but I had to go do security for Jessica James and Ron ( the Hedgehog ) Jeremy. Love you E dock guys and I think My arm has been twisted to go to the shootout even without a boat . See you there

Not sure I ever laughed so hard when the food fight started at dinner but with Elliott there to mediate we were in good hands, NOT!!!! Furthermore, the event showed and demonstarted the ability of many boats and manufacturers. We look forward to another "Safe & Fun" event next year. Keep up the "GREAT" work.

Thank you from "Team Shogren"
