That is very impressive. To go that fast, that far, with no mechanical problems, have enough fuel, and battle a fog bank, that is really a helluva accomplishment; in a pleasure boat too. I am a real fan of this race/long disatnce run around LI. That 43' OL is a really nice boat.

So who who will tackle the Miami to NY run? Time for that record to fall.

Isn't it enough that Joe Sgro was in the boat representing Outerlimits, especially in this economy. Also I really think attacking Dan was way off base and totally uncalled for!

Here's to hoping that next year there's even more participants.

Winning the event and lasting mechanically is a victory in itself.

Winning the event, surviving mechanically and beating a very long time standing record is a whole nother level of victory!

Congrats to all big and small, past and present.

Congrats should also be given to Mr. Mike Fiore for his vision and drive to build these incredible boats. Outerlimits was and still is ahead of there competion IMHO. Congrats to everyone involved.

Didn't feel like getting into some of the BS posts on here, but congrats to everyone entered and great job to the winners.
But.. since it's an OL, thread... anyone want to see Mike and me in 96 on his yellow cat diesel powered boat... running in the Michigan? pier 33/Thunder Marine PR?
I have the VCR, yup it's a VCR, if anyone can copy the VCR vid to CD or whatever, I will send the VCR and the pics or vids can be posted. Mike looked a lot younger.. and so did I. lol

Well, it's OSO so no surprise to me.... It's too bad your thread was hijacked and thrown off course...

Glad you got the race off this year and congratulations to all involved, especially OL and both Joe's!

You don't think Key West gets worldwide press? Buzzi goes there to race. Even the Class1 guys race Key West.
