Just got home and wasn't able to give a report. Made it to the Bimini turn and was heading back and stripped a gear in the left hand lower unit.

In the end they didn't have the right parts and we headed back on one engine. If you catch the right wave you can surf the 28 on plane. Or you can have a boat pull you like a skier with Tyson on the front of the boat until its on plane and let go of the rope there you go. No biggy its the Ocean and you do what you have to to get home We did 45 to 55 MPH all the way back and completed the entire distance plus a little. It was a great exsperiance a we will do it again!! Thats the offical Jim and Tyson Bimini race report. IT WAS FUN!!!!!!

We were running around 75-77 mph trying to be easy on it till we made the turn then we were going to run harder on the way back.

I watched my video from the go-pro and we were in third place a little less then 6 min behind the leader when we made the turn at Bimini, when I get a good Internet connection I will start posting some videos
