Here is the real stuff.
http://www.tigerperformance.com/

We just used a normal full size scuba tank secured to the floor next to the back seat. All three regulators fed off the one tank. We could stay under for 20 minutes with all three of us on the one tank. The key is having the regulator within an inch of your mouth so that when you need it, it's easy to find.

It was also helpful that we did the dunker at the pool just 24 hrs before going over.

Timucin,

Ron P gave you excellent advice on the safety aspects of testing. I don't know that any of us actually planned on crashing. When you're racing or testing you're always one gust, one wave, one turn away from crashing. When you're in a canopied boat such as you're Skater, it's important to have external safety people at the wait. Due to folks like T2x, George Linder, Ron Jones Sr. and their colleagues, we've singifiantly reduced the number of fatalities. A primary danger now is drowning in a canopy that cannot open or was a poor design that shattered. T2x can give you solid information on your cockpit design, reinforcement structures etc.


Cuda, what Skiff folks were you with? Didn't Robby of the Pancake House have a Skiff then? Heck of a nice guy. Rememebr that referee we had back then. He was a local judge, I forget his name.... always gave us the "alcohol lecture" on Sunday morning. As I recall that was probably about 10 hours too late for some

The Saturday crash was in a 145 Hydro that was blue. It was an Ed Karelsen design owned by Bob Field of Palm Beach. We blew over in turn 2 on the far side. Another 145 driven by Bobby Thrash blew over next to me.

The Sunday blowover was a Sooy hull that had blue decks and varnished sides and bottom. It was owned by Dick Kelly of Dover Delaware. That one blew over on the beginning of the second lap going in to turn 1. I think the fellow you're referring to as pissed was probably Dick kelly The largest part of his boat brought back would fit in a brief case..... ooooooppps. He recovered, built a new boat and I had a blast driving for him the following year, safely.............. That boat was powered by a 4 cylinder Ford on alcohol. I think it was an Esslinger or some name like that. Real screamer, 9400 RPM.

T2x, Real nice about Doug, Jerry and me. Schmuck, loving schmuck mind you, but still.............................

Allan 4,

When a sailbote rolls over, does it cease to remain a course marker

Allan 4, we'd have to check with Ron P, T2x, Ryan and a couple others, but you have my vote! Not just because you knocked yourself out barefooting, but you admitted you were once on a sailbote. Now that takes, well you know.................................

WUHAHAHAHAAA...that was pretty good...... What can I say, I grew up boating on little lakes....you knw, pontoons, skiboats, sailboats, jet skis.....etc.....Still love it.

I know sailboats get a pretty bad rap, but in heavy wind they can be a hell of a good time

Okay, I'll stop embarrassing myself now......did I ever tell you about the time I knocked myself out barefooting, being chased by armed Yugoslavians on speed...HeHeHe.....

Steve, will you be racing in New Orleans?

Will you be staying dry?

I wish Reggie was on this thread, he's in the club too. I think it was about 2 years ago that him and his son went over. Reggie actually said it was his fault!!!!!!
