ALOT actually, including myself of course though I decided to remain anonymous... Met with Fred Kiekhaefer president and founder of Mercury racing and enjoyed quite a long conversation about everything from products to racing. Top notch guy he is for sure.

Few pics,

They said at the awards ceremony last night 185 boats came through card stop 1. 45,000 attended the street party and there was a fleet of what looked like well over 300 boats lined up in the course to spectate. Spoke with Gary a bit last night, said he bumped it up to 185 on the way to the 1st stop and he said there was still a lot more left! There's a video on YouTube of him passing the green M31 DCB like a rubber band. That DCB is FAST and has massive torque with the 1350's but Garys new power is huge! Whatch the video, it's impressive.

Thanks tank.... I watched the Green M31 getting passed and it was amazing to see.... Gary went right by the M31 like it was standing still... unreal, bcuz we all know the Green M31 is a legit 176mph boat...... Gary's new motors must be amazing...

We ran back with lick this from pirates cove. I have a pretty cool video from my iPhone of it blowing past us on the way up to needles. I was talking to Sean (owner of Lick This) at the dock about how it's just one of those famous (iconic) boats that everyone loves.
