Shane,

I ran Ft.Myers and Cleveland with him last year...in the process of buying the boat from him with another friend of mine..hoping to get down to Fla this month to pick it up.

You gotta stop down to Jersey to check us out!

Marty

Marty,

I have raced the boat with Greg. Need any info? I would be happy to help you any way I can. Make sure you know it inside and out. Have it surveyed before you buy to ensure its insurability. I will be at a few races this year to watch. Which ones are you planning to race?

What class? That boat would be awesome with 500 EFI's! Needs to be dialed in a little better though. CG to far back. Had to trim it to the moon for any kind of speed and then you were sacrificing to much and it ran way to bow high. I think the additional relaibility over those tweaked small blocks would be a big benefit as well. If set up right that is a great rough water boat. Look at Tsunamai!

Hi Bob, The Crazy Greek is a great guy. I saw him last week. That era of racing was truly hardcore! I'm sure you have a bunch of war stories of those rough water battles. I for one woulf love to see pics of the greek and all the raceboats of that era. i have been to the njppc library but didn't see the greek.

i would love to see any pics of those hardcore raceboats.

Thanks and best regards,

James

Kurt actually called me and asked me to post his results.

Not bad but he still missed two of them.
