Default a question for offshore racers and poker runners

is it normal to see stress cracks in the bottom of a boat that is run hard, is it something to be concerned about?

I would keep a very close on eye on them and if you want I will look at them for you. You do not want to end up with what I did. If you need repairs the guy doing mine is supposedly one of the best in the business. We shall see. He won't do it if you are cheaping out. Says he does not want hi name on anything not done right. He calls exactly when he says and seems extremely honest. I know about a dozen people or more that use or have used him.

Oh forgot you could always get a Cig and say goodbye to stress cracks (Actually I beat the '88 Fountain I had like a rented mule in the ocean and nothing ever showed up)

"we will run the the boat way beyond its limits"

I couldn't help but, this is a quote from you on 8/1/03.

I don't know where you're located but Fast Forward in Brewerton, NY can fix your problem the right way.

Randy & Glenn raced their white Kryptonite for 5 years. They placed in approx. 100 races. There is not a single crack on that thing. Randy & Glenn race as if on crack, but the boat ignores it. They just bought a new (black) Kryptonite. And Ed Smith of Smitty Marine (on of the best in the trade) rented the white one to race in Milwaukee ...

BTW, the white one is for sale.
