My question is, what is happening with APBA LLC and APBA Detroit. I hear things but see no evidence.
Interesting little article in Propeller Magazine on the offshore page about memberships.

Hey Ron P,
ONLY 20 to 30 boats,dont you think it would be better and alot more competetive if you had 10 to 15 boats in each class unless you are only doing this to say that you race boats and that I finished in the top 3 boats,There are alot of people associated with SBI that have outrageous equipment and are also very talanted as racers that I am very surprised do not want to have more competition to prove themselves and to the competition that they are serious about winning and prove that they can win with more than 1 or 2 boats in a class.And as for the Jersey Boys they are going to have a better turn out of boats than the professional classes in SBI.I think that the Jersey Boys have the right concept and hopefully it will flow over into the APBA not just stop with the SBI events.

Bigger classes of boats = bigger fun factor. I wasn't saying what I liked.

Rock on Jersey Boyz and the OPA NE series.

Now you've got my attention. Very few people saw those signs. That's funny that you remember that. Someone called B&M and told them about our new decal because the next day when I called to see if they would help out (since they were rebuilt the week before, because they broke before our first race the month prior) they weren't too pleased. You know we made real decals for the engine hatch that stayed on for the rest of the season.

Yup once we got the B&Ms out and the Hubers in, we did OK.

What boat do you have? Mr T ran in the mid 90s, hell we averaged 77 in Ocean City MD in four foot seas. That was our best race of all. I can't imagine a better built and designed boat than a Phantom. I just don't know why Will's boats aren't in demand as much as they should be.

Our business was sold and so was the boat.
