I heard that they passed F2-13 on the caution lap, thus giving them a 1 minute penalty...

It was based on a rule set up specifically for the Fountain boats because the Fountain race boats do not use the factory gas tanks as they are supposed too per the APBA rules. 35's without factory gas tanks have to have a certain amount of weight mounted in a certain place in the boat per the ABPA, 57 did not have the weight in for the race. Rule may have been from the days when the 35's lapped the field? but the team (57) knew the rule was still in effect. Worst part of the whole thing is that I heard the boats still run the same with the weight installed.

BH....actually we broke a skeg right off and took part of the case with it....after that happened the boat went sideways like a jet ski causing everything to be torn off...ugly!....we should have the video clip soon to show!!! we learned a lot so it was not a total loss...just part of racing...i could do with out the bailing part though!!!!LOL


actually lute thought he could remove the weight after they added some 380 lbs to the front of the boat...they were still over weight after the race...they we NOT trying to pull a fast one by any means.

both lets play and 57 ran one hell of a race!!!

we look forward to the savannah race!!!

Joey:

I happy to hear that you and Phil are OK. Did you get knocked around much?

The rumor mill said the boat took on some water -- hope it didn't get into the engines! (but the rumor mill also said my canopy was torn off)

Give some details when you get a chance.
