Tyson got on the front of the boat , put the rope thru the D ring hung on to the end of the rope. Then the tow boat and the Skater came up on plane together and Tyson let go of the rope and got back in his seat and off we went. Back to Miami!! It was interesting It didnt need a lot of pull to get it on plane. We got on plane by surfing down a wave earlier but thought it would be rude to keep going and blow off the tow boat that was coming over to get us. It all worked out just fine.

After that it was Jimmy Lee, Unfortunately he lost an engine, ended up running back on one after the tow boat got him on plane...





Loriblu made it four around the bouy, and that was it...



Bruce, Sorry I did'nt have a chance to say hello while over at the Bimini turn. I remember you yelling IMAX at the time but I didn't put two and two together. Thanks for going all the way out there to take pics
