Congrats on completing the run, and in good time too.
Now you should be confident on running the boat to PW next time!
30ft, small blocks and alphas!
Well done!
Thanks Storm, good talking to you too

Sounds good Joe! My pictures are up on National Powerboat website btw.

It was awesome seeing you take off in the beginning! I was onboard Guy LaMotta's big 53' Magnum, which we used as the race pace-boat.

John,
The offer was very hard to pass up, but I had to go home and spend some time with my wife and daughter.
If your in the states again anytime soon ring me up and we'll hang out.....that is if I don't make it to England first!
Great to meet you mate
Joe

Thanks for the props!
I have not figured total fuel burn yet , need to fill tanks to get that number. Read Top Banana's post(s) in the sticky "hero's"
no sense rehashing what he is already posting.
Don't forget we did not do this first, maybe the first in twenty years, but most definitly NOT the first.

Sorry for bringing up an old thread but, Sonic30SS

Do you happen to launch out of Hays Haven?

If not I have seen a boat exactly like yours there...
