Default Update and a SPECIAL thank you

Many, many Thanks to all those in the racing community who offered sincere concern and help yesterday.
If anyone of the many who approached me after the incident felt I blew them off I apologize. Things were a bit tense and after I learned Allen and Andrew were gonna be ok my concern and concentration focused on the equipment.
The biggest thanks goes to the folks of the rescue teams who were on scene to help Allen and Andrew right after they rolled. After talking with the guys from the Lavey team last nite, they said they had to dodge the rescue boat when they got to our boat. They were only 15 or so sec. behind our boat and the rescue guys beat them there. THATS FAST!!!!
The boat seems to be mechanicaly and structuraly ok and I thank Warlock for building such a great boat, thats why I have one.
Minor cosmetic glass work and we'll live to race another day.
Allen is out watching the race today from the comfort of a big ass cruiser, Andrew will be coming home from the hospital and I'm gonna mow my lawn.
All in all we were the luckest team in Offshore racing yesterday.
See ya all in lauderdale

I'm sure happy to hear everyone is ok. That was one ugly wreck! It happened right in front of where we were. The lap before that they almost went over in the same place.

Wow...glad everyone is ok. The boat is secondary, but glad to hear that it is in one piece still as well.

Good luck, helps to get a little help from upstairs on raceday.
