That is cool stuff; congrats. However, if my little girl was aspiring to be a top notch female racer, I would want it to by Ashley Force Hood. Ashley has actually won races and is leading the funny car points.

Wow. Dont ever stop being boastful. There is a lot to be proud of. I wish most of today's youth would excell as much as your daughter. Congrats!!!

Cool to see a young girl learning to pilot a boat, I wish I tried driving a boat before I turned 30, I don't think I will ever get the hang of it. Is she interested in the mechanical end of things, that's one thing I notice is important in offshore no matter how much money you have, it does you no good other than paying for a tow if something minor breaks while on a run. However with some knowledge and a few tools on board you often can be back running before you know it.

Where on the island do you boat?
