Did Gone Again make a run?

Is there a list somewhere of all the runs and boat types?

Thanks,
Ernie

Ok, thanku, I knew something was severly wrong. Even Bob Teague commented on his run, bcuz the boat was way, way out of shape.. I was a little nervous wanting his run...

There was also a Spectre that got way out of shape, on his one and only run. I got very nervous and jumped off my couch...never saw the boat run again.. I think it was a 32, not sure..

Wow, tough weekend for some Skaters. Hate seeing major issues in an event like this.
