Maybe some may not agree with me, but a postponement of the attempt in need of more testing time is the best news I could have heard today ! This boat has only seen the water 8 times since it was built.
I would rather see them take their time with this project and get all of the bugs worked out then to risk it all and have a catastrophic ending.

Something tells me Big Al Sr was watching over them today and had them make the right choice to wait.

Mr Scott said it best :

I look forward to seeing them reach their goal, but just when they feel they are 100 % ready to do it.

Best of luck Al & Bob !

Maybe a phone call to Jerry Gilbreath is in order?

He was very instrumental in some of the the Al Sr./ Sirois projects and knows how to keep things under control, safe and successful.

Just a suggestion....no knock on the current crew, they have done an amazing job..... but this effort certainly needs the "best of the best".....and that's Jerry.

Well, if they do that then two things must follow: 1) double the current budget; and 2) do not let him touch the throttles.
