How am I a douche? Last year, sonic powerboats (Tony F) put together a nice sonic gift bag for the winner. (Joe defusco). While it's not nessecary to do, I would think a top notch company like OL would do the same. It's great publicity for the company. And since our boy Dan has all the in's, I figured he could set something up. Respect and gratitude goes both ways mastercraft.

And my post was more rhetorical than anything...I just hope OL takes care of the winners (not that it's any of my business or anyone elses for that matter).

Thank you

Kudos to that combo. Very impressive with those speeds.

What were water conditions like around the course ?

Anything in way of rough water ?

Default Knots/mph

Kattack is presented in Knots not MPH. for a clearer understanding refer to the following.
Knots versus Miles per Hour - NASA:
http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/g...ts_vs_mph.html

The record was real. And I love Stuey Hayim.

Let's not forget the second record broken on Sunday.
That would be the Outboard record. Smashed from 5 hr 26 min by an hour and 11 min. And that was in a Fountain Fishboat folks with 4 Merc 300s. Team Roadrunner with Norm Salem, Owner/driver and Bob Kohlenberg, on the throttles did it in 4 hr 15 min. I was onboard and believe me that one is most definitely real.
Incidently, haven't even looked at Kattack, which I will in depth when I edit the piece for TV and promo, however, after we made the turn at Montauk and faced the HUGE breakers and got settled in on the South shore run we got back to averaging 60 mph (that's about 52 knots). Joe has a bit more seat time, so I'm pretty sure he did better than that.

Hey, be happy Billy Frenz is actually bringing something huge to the sport (as he always has)...something the sports needs, which is new direction.
