These boats are designed and built to race or be used offshore style. Is not the Bimini run more the venue for all these boats to show their attributes as well as the abilities of the throttlemen with all the changing water conditions and the stamina required to withstand the conditions that are presented ?

As for running side by side , is it not a recipe for a possible bad time ?
You've been posting the negative side, or more eager to point out everything that could go wrong with someones' fun, in a few threads of late; like your random pointed comment about the E Dock guys, and this one for example? Why the rush to take that stance with everyone all of a sudden?

Maybe its just leftovers from my friends accident last week.

Just over cautious I guess.

Go and enjoy.

I enjoy the fun as much as the rest.

Audacity, the way pieces have been getting thrown or blown off your boat, you may want to keep your distance from the spectator's!

really! and now we have to add flying props to the list! sure am pleased that we were not digging that out of another boat!

honestly i have mixed feelings about the course in Biloxi and MANY other places for that matter (LOTO). the line jeff and i were taking was about the line and not the fans. being an offshore race fan can be dangerous.

no worries! i have no idea what happened to your friend! is it in another thread? location?

people are always amazed at how cautious i am in a pleasure boat. and even a race boat for that matter. i have never driven a pleasure boat at night above 25mph...one of the many rules i have. truthfully i would like to see more people attend schools like TRES MARTINS OFFSHORE SCHOOL! loosing a drive (come to mind) at high speed; people have been killed over the years! i am sure someone like tres is going to simulate and 'school' you on how to control this!
