Dirty Laundry did win, because we didn't switch fuel tanks properly, and stopped dead in the water for several minutes before we figured out what was wrong. It was our first race, and we didn't really know what we were doing!

Well mostly you looked like you knew what you were doing. Fantastic race.

I thought I would need kidney transplants just looking at that race!

Just monster nasty water.

That clip fueled my love of Apache boats! There are a lot of cool boats at LOTO on any given weekend at any given bar. If there is an Apache tied off...that's the first boat my son will go look at!

Your crew running Allez Vite was exciting, thanks for that.

I`ll never understand why watching a bunch of dudes in tights, pilling on top of each, with guy all bent over and another dude putting his hands up the guys ass ...all homoerotic like.. with 2 seconds of action between plays, or watching cars go around and around and around in a circle, or a bunch of dudes standing around waiting to catch a ball or their turn at bat is so popular but this exciting, non stop action sport isn`t the hotest ticket in town !??!?!!?!?
