2 footers will see an asault on the record ... average 60 probably won't win

what is the length limit this year? I heard they increased it to 40, 42'???

I might be interested in pulling a brave skier behind my 42' cigarette.

Sounds good. As I have never competed at Catalina before I would like a crew who has run the event before.(Or at least an observer) All of the Aussie skiiers I have spoken to have reinforced how important a good consistant run is. As mentioned earlier in the thread a 60mph average will win it outright!! I am hoping for a top 10 finish and would like a crew to understand and drive to the conditions. I have heard of some horror stories of inexperienced crews making the race very difficult. In regards to speed...Your boats are much bigger and the water is much bigger than what I'm used to!!! However I would be confident at sking at 60mph + in 2 foot water.
Regards, Jason.

Jason-

We have an observer that is A+ and experianced. Do you have the goods and can you work as a team? It takes a team effort, not just an individual. We have the hardware and experianced team.......you got the game?

Looking for that email!

Kevin and I were thinking about doing this, plus the experianced observer (you met the guy). Can't give ya the details....otherwise we'd give our game away!!! You pilot the Sunseeker. and take care of the girls.
