So the repair was performed at LOTO?

Yes. The boat was on the travel lift when they noticed some gel-cote damage from the truck ride out from NY. They had it fixed before it was put in the water.

I was told a flywheel broke and went though the bottom.

I noticed on my Go Pro vid at Captn Ron's that he was listing. That's an ugly bottom. It was rough around the last two turns as we got closer to Ron's. glad everyone made it. A 21 Skater broke its jackplate and almost lost the motor there as well. Just another day in the life of a Skater owner.

Thanks Blume. I was in the other 21 and got caught in the back at the start. Jim Lee said they would run about 50 or so to get everyone lined up. It took about 3 miles to get out of the initial washing machine and another few to start seeing some of the rooster tales. About that time we starting seeing some boats stopped and Chris in the red had 21 slowed down at the beginning of his problems. We got going pretty good by then and actually worked our way though some of the boats at the back. We had a blast. My wife was driving and said I didn't know this was a race! I said it wasn't.

I too was behind at the start. Lost fuel pressure and I'd like to give a shout out to the Glencove Marina. After driving thirty miles each way to find pump and replacing electric high pressure fuel pump. And then the mechanical as well to no avail. Upon inspection filters clogged with resin and debris. Great huh? After pulling 2050 miles from santa cruz ca just a buzz kill.
