Default Bacardi accident in NC

Sat while running around 100 a kid on a jet ski mada a hard turn and hit the Barcardi on the port side close to the rear. Small damage was done to the port side but the glass men from Fountain worked feverishly to fix the cracks and Barcardi was running perfectly on Sunday. The investion is continuing on the incident, luckily the kid was not hurt. If a little sooner or later he may have been between the forks or on the props. No news as to WHY the kid was even in the area.

I will tell you this, they were flying on Sunday, best guess is 150-160 on the straights until Pier 57 broke and then they throttled back to 120-130.
