Default Phenomenon Getting Short on Time

Breaking records is never easy, http://www.boats.com/boat-content/20...on-propellers/.

I wish the entire Phenomenon crew success. But what's far more important is that everyone comes back safely.

Hope that the prop's come in time and you get a chance to test. We have been waiting to see this special day for "Big Al Copeland Sr." but most of all be safe and good luck guys.

"We’re just not going to push it. There’s too much at stake.”

Wise words. Also, props that touch can be a bit of a problem as well.

Especially, though not most importantly, when they cost $10,000 a piece.

I met one of AL's best friends and team members son at a tire shop here one day. He knew nothing about powerboats but saw my boat and was telling me the story of it all. Told me to look it up and I never did so it's kind of cool to see this surface

I met Al Jr. at the Miami boat show this past year. One hell of a nice guy I think it is awesome he is carrying on the legacy. Back in the day the question was "Who was going to beat the Popeyes Boat" Maybe we will be asking the same question again!!
