No cheeseburger smiles this year in Daytona for me.

I'll be checking out the elbow draggers or hanging with the bro @ the Commander booth at the Anaheim Boat show this weekend..

Anyone going ..?

Grand prix in Long Beach is this weekend too, I think.

I won't be going...

I have to get that drain tube taken out this weekend

Of course, they have to remove it through my LOWER UNIT ...

I sure hope the Doctor uses the same stuff to knock me out. I don't remember a thing in the recovery room......

We live here in town and certainly appreciate the show all of you put on. We were fortunate enough to have our business sponsor the Reindl One Design Class and they offered us test rides in the boats. We went out in the big stuff yesterday and the water got really nasty. I have been out in many boats in the Daytona Waters, and no boat has ever handled even close to the way the batboat did. The thing cornered like it was on rails, even in the rough stuff. I would love to see some turning radius numbers on that boat at high speeds. You guys must be on an adrenaline high the entire race.

The thing that impressed me and the rest of the guys testing the boats was the way it always stayed level. That has to be the secret to it going so fast. The boat never wasted any horsepower. A few times the boat would just go right through the top of a wave, it truely was amazing, and the new seating (By I think PPI in Sarasota - don't kill me if I am wrong) made for a comfortable ride. The onboard cameras and rear view camera and screen also made it east to see the other boats - and provided coverage of what we did to laugh about it over some beers next weekend. One word sums up the entire experience - AMAZING.

Huge thanks to Chris, Nick, Chris C., Tara, Matt and the rest of the Batboat crew. We had a blast and will certainly be glad to sponsor you anytime you are in town.
