Guys,

Thanks to all of you (and Tom Newby, who donated his work) that poster raised a lot of money (I don't remember how much) for one of the September 11 funds. Unfortunately, I don't believe there are any left, nor are there plans to produce additional copies.

Sept. 9, 2001 before really becoming nuts I was a patrol boat for SBI. I was taking photos(yes The Godfather was a patrol boat taking pictures). Well it was a year and a half later when my wife took out the film a got it developed. There was Planetman (Tim Ciasulli & Crew) in the middle of the Towers, two days later they were gone. I had a poster made for Tim and it now sits in his Trophy room. If I can find the photo I will put it up. Pretty scarey finding it a year and a half later.

That is the same one I have.. My wife got it because I wanted it of the towers and Drambuie.. I didn't know that was a skater in that.

I have the actual poster. I can get a copy of it for you?? I have a friend in the Print business...

Wow so many interesting stories surrounding that print.

For me I tried to get a print but they were sold out before I ordered one. I was at sterling when they were doing the Alcone, Drambuie, etc boats in the picture and it was a print I just had to have. For my birthday that year low and behold my sister had beat me to it and even had it framed. That has been on the wall in my room ever since (and that includes moving 4+ times).

Then I was hanging out a couple months ago with a high school buddy I hadn't seen in years. We got to talking about boats and he had heard i got bit by the offshore bug pretty good and mentioned he had been hanging on to a poster for me. When he pulled it out yep you guessed it...the one from Powerboat mag. What's really cool is we haven't hung out since 2003 or so and yet he hung on to it specifically for me. Now I've got one in the bedroom and over the bar. Pretty cool.

I have the poster framed and take it with me to many of our race sites because people never get tired of seeing it.

This picture was taken the weekend of the SBI race, on the saturday evening before 9/11, from the ferry boat.
Click on the picture and it gets even better.
Just wanted to share one of my favorites.
