Jim, vid show your 46 out running teague, pure platinum and JBS, but it didnt show 44 Mercedes.... He must of come on strong at the end to get 2nd... Also, JBS being a turbine, I'm suprised they werent able to catch you... 50ft boat, so plenty of size... What happend to JBS...?....

About 8 miles before the turn at Bimini it turned smooth and then the turbine boats started catching us and passed us as we were going around the turn, we had made it 5-6 miles back towards Miami when we passed Mercedes going the other way so we had a 10-12 mile lead on them at that point and we were around two miles behind the turbines about half way back and it started getting rough so we started making up some distance on them then when we were about 12 miles out Jim decided he wanted to try to catch them and put the throttle on the dash and about a quarter mile later we broke a prop, we stopped to see what was causing the vibration, found an ear gone on the prop so we started heading back around 40 mph mainly on the other engine with the broke prop engine only running 1000-1200 rpm after a few miles we started seeing rooster tails catching us.. We figured we were around 8 miles out and they were around 8 miles behind us so as long as we averaged half there speed we would still win, they were getting close and then the last mile Jim went ahead and gassed it to cross the Finnish line running strong and then around a minuite later the Mercedes crossed the line...

I think pure platinum broke a few blower belts but they did still Finnish not too long after..

I would not have wanted to be in pure platinum trying to keep up with Jim, that is alot smaller boat and there were times that he would be back behind us pretty far then come running up on us fast, so at some points they had to be running at least 30 mph faster then us.. if you notice I had my camera aimed at them for along time because each time they would come running up on us I figured I would get a good flip on tape.
