Default How fricken cool is this gig

So first Extreme Boats Mag sends me to Daytona to write a story about the race and now they are sending me to Marathon to cover the next race in two weeks.

To top is off, Steve Miklos has invited me to race with him against other magazine editors in the other SVL boats. I believe he got someone from Hot Boat, Powerboat and Me.

I'm getting the feeling that I should be paying the magazine...oh did I say that?

See ya all in Marathon....... To be continues in www.extremeboatsmag.com sign up for three free issues.

Ron,
That sounds like a great gig!!! But I thought you promised your wife you gave up racing-I know someone who would love to fill in for you if Terry won't let you race....
Best of luck!
Bob

Bob, its been 8 years and 20lbs since the last time I got in a race boat. I told her that there was no way I'd get in any race boat without a lid and scuba. At least that worked last time.

I met Steve in December and he was a very nice guy. He saw my boat and immediately started giving me speed ideas. I think that he had it up 7-8 mph without getting any new parts

It was pretty cool to me and congrats on the 'gig.' Can't think of a much better "job" than that!!!!!!! If that's what you can call it
