I am pretty sure that picture of DJ on the dock is in Marathon, Florida Keys, at the Faro Blanco. I think that is Red Crain standing next to the 24' Skater , Absolute......

I stood on the beach and watched and wished. also NEVER TO OLD !!!!!!!!!!!!! Omar Danial and I have already been talking about next year. Now that there is a record to be broken it makes more of a challenge. I spoke with D.J. about the last Don A. race and he really was not interested, that was all then as he put it.
I was in the orange Tiger, afterwards Bobby S was talking with me and grinning, I offered the throttle to him next year...he got a big grin and winked and said to call him....

Default Don't laugh!!!!

Here is Don in AC at a drivers meeting, I think this was 1988 when he had the 43 Scarab? My wife is the blonde behind and right with the 80's hair -doo and I have the blue & white cap on next to her.

IMHO you need 1 sanctioning body with rules that match the UIM like the old days. With the US $ so weak the Euro boats can come here very cheaply, you need big turn outs (#'s of boats) that bring real dollars to a local economy. Whether the old days were better???? You can't have organized anything when you have splintered groups with agendas.

The celebs will always make things a little more interesting for the average person, it doesn't matter if they make racing better they bring people out to the race site, the people spend money in the local area (food, drink, rooms, gifts, gambling, etc) and that makes racing work for everyone involved.

I think he was a navigator here in '87. Idling in early on one of the races in Key West.
