I think it had something to do with the duct tape holding the bottom on in the pits after the run...

JBS was hauling AZZ but got a little off course. They did take first over all in the end and Statement took second overall. We were third overall but the first piston boat. Gino was some of the roosters in the vid at first but they had navigation challenges as well as getting beat up a little by the waves. Its a little harder then it looks to stay on course if nobody is around and or your GPS fails or isn't set right . Its a real 106 mile race!! No looking back or second chances if you break or get off course. Its a fun race for everybody to do once. Its really not a big deal if you take first place but simply that you made it to Bimini and back in whatever boat you take.

Sounds Good Jim.... 106miles of open ocean racing...unreal. I can't wait to see footage of this years race.. Ya watching your in board camera, I couldn't see land and was hopeing you guys were on course.. Kinda nerve racking out in the ocean like that... Now I see how important the GPS is.... I had no idea that you lost sight of land for such a long period of time.... Man oh Man, if you break out there,,, that would be a scarey thought.....

lol.

I remember running to Turks and Caicos from Great Exuma with Bob... 340 miles ?
plus, seems like we crossed a few spots that were 7,000ft + ...

from the boat it all looks the same.

We just ran 117 miles in the 28 Skater last weekend. Plenty of range to make the race. Still had a quarter tank left. If anybody has an open cockpit 28 Skater or simular please go and lets have some fun old school!! We could all pitch in and first takes it all !!
