Cord,
The pics I posted were from prior to the event. I posted them to try to keep speculation to a minimum.

The CG boys mean business. I work with them on a regular basis.... I've seen their determination. Their next move would likely be to crush that pirate boat with that all aluminum 47'.

this whole situation pisses me off, not just because the boys got banged up...but because we were running late and I missed being there to open a can myself.

You can be sure that I'll tell all of my Keys customers not to even glance toward the Magic Penny!!!

From some of the stories I have heard regarding healthcare recently, I would get Pepe the hell out of there if there is even a HINT of question. DO NOT take no for an answer!
I hope all is well as soon as possible!

Perhaps a new thread for doctors on the board to call would be in order.


steve: big kudos for helping out. Again.

That CG Cutter looked a bit grungy.
Somebody ought to wash the poor thing. I know those boats are bare aluminum but there has be a way to keep it looking clean.

We saw them in the pits on Saturday, spoke with Dave Robinson and even bought a couple T's from them. They were getting ready to take a few practice runs. The boat looked good as they went zipping by the pier later that evening.

Glad to hear he's doing okay and hope he has a speedy recovery.

Update

Jo is home with a cracked # 1 in his lower back. He will be hurting for a while.

Pepe is still in Key West hospital and has some pretty serious injuries. Fluid in the lungs and his leg is in bad shape, arm and shoulder problems also. I believe they are trying to get him moved to a Miami hospital.

The boat is back at the Factory and is OK. There is damage but it can be fixed.

Jo and Pepe went right from the pits to the race course on Sunday. They were working with the Merc guys trying to get air out of the steering but ran out of time. Steering problem was the main cause of the mishap.

Jo and Pepe are lucky to still be with us.

A horrible chain of events.

Our thoughts are with you Pepe, Linda, Jo, Barb, and everyone at the shop.
