With that kind of number, I would bet this would be the last Bimini Run.

I understand Pyburn's Skater had issues at the Poker Run last weekend. There is also a Poker Run this weekend A-Bay. I believe Aqua-Mania is there and maybe a few other boats.

Some big stuff will be out on Sunday. Cintron Cat to go against Geico.

Class 1 is supposed to loaded with all sorts of competition...


I was only in the pits this morning before having to get out on the water. I hope many of the OPA teams were still on the road because there were very few as of this morning...

Time will tell.
I heard 15 boats, about a hour ago 7:30 PM. It's too bad the bimini run turn out was weak. Almost sounds as though each boat could have its own photographer. Thanks for the updates.

How long did it take you to get back, Tyson? From what I read, it sounds like you were on one engine near Bimini.

Pete, Whoever told you 15 boats for the OPA race was dead wrong unless approximately 10 more boats arrived in 30 minutes ???

There are about 25 boats with race numbers on them in the lot at the moment. I hear more will be arriving tomorrow. They are still on the road. ! specifically is Cleveland Construction. Talkn' Trash was to be here but I just heard it is at TnT with water in one of the engines. Final count isn't known until race day....

well as I heard about 25 boats as of Saturday night, still not a huge turn out. The effort that goes into putting this event on!

Cool story update from the Bimini run, courtesy of Brad Schoenwald: To get Jim Lee's 28' Skater back from the island, where it limped in on one outboard engine, the boat got towed back on plane and then return, with Lee driving, on one engine at 60 mph.
