I thought I read an article a while back where it partially sank and was towed to the launch.

Its odd that the Copelands restaurant here in BA Oklahoma closed its doors a week ago!

I sure hope things arent going downhill enough for them to actually quit the build.

Can't imagine what they didn't like about your last story.

Sometimes i wonder if it would not be better to just mount a hull to a fast airplane (small jet) and land it at speed on the water. You could set the water speed record and then fly home

At this point we are over the take off speed of any plane anyways so instead of a fast boat setting a speed record that should be done in an airplane why not set a slow jet down on the water with a fiberglass hull might be a more prudent thing to do

(No offence Kilo Kat just tounge and cheek)

By the way Dave and Johhny still rule the water if you ask me

Still don't know what is going on with "Phenomenon". Matt, I couldn't read your story becasue my computer froze up when I clicked on to your link. What did you say that bugged them? Phenomenon was Big Al's dream and I think everyone wanted to see it break the speed record as a tribute to one of the Legends of Offshore Powerboat Racing.
