I guess if you use the ramp you can't park in the secured lot.

Yep. Just buy your permit!! I got a ticket one year. Billy said now they have a meter machine that takes credit cards. You just leave the permit on your dash.

Any idea if there is over night parking there? I have a building in Brooklyn that I can drop the trailer but It still a bit of a hike from the ramp.

I don't know much about the ramp but every year there are a bunch of trucks/trailers parked at the marina. Not sure if they all use the travel-lift to get parking but there's usually a good number of trucks/trailers parked in the field.

I really don't think it's going to be a wash-out, just a chance of showers/storms. The real rain is supposed to be tonight/tomorrow. Let's hope I'm right.

I couldn't agree more... Even if it isn't a washout it sux to have to deal with crap weather.... I can't see Billy postponing though... Between people from out of state, permits, insurance, etc....it would be hard if not impossible.

I agree...It was a good turn out I'd say about 40ish boats despite the rain . Better than sitting home kicking stones pissed off about the rain.Thanks Billy

Default We Did It!

Fortunately, the weather held out....somewhat...
Friday nite's HALL OF FAME Party was tremendous...alot of great Champions from "yesterday".
On Saturday, we got the run in..."just"...and GLAD WE DID...there are so may "parts/permits" to producing this affair! I am so happy for Dr Bill Schmid; I hope at 77 years old I still have his Passion for the "speed" that he demonstrated on Saturday.
Thanks for all of your support guys...just got home to CT...gotta' go to sleep now for about 72 hours.
The website, www.nationalpowerboat.com , is being updated now...should be alot of photos "up" soon.
My direct e-mail is: [email protected]
if you need any direct/confidential info.
PS: On another thread I read that the MTI was "detuned"...how could you come to NEW YORK CITY and not bring your "A Game/all the boost" ...somebody is not sleeping well over that decision!
