Glad to hear everyone is ok. That has got to be a pretty scary feeling having the boat come around like that!

Glad you guy's are ok. Take some advice here.......If you have a 25 boat length advantage your obviously faster. Make up your time in the straights and take a wider - SLOWER pace in the turns. Ya know your acting just like a ROOKIE - haha - BH

Its not the boat, its the way its driven. I watched Wilma and Brian spin in the same turn at the same speed chasing you guys. Bottom line is that if you are hanging your ass out over the edge you might just get spanked..... and we did. This whole thing makes us stronger as a team though. I am confident that we have the speed to be competitive in F2 and look forward to dialing in the F2 set up for the coming races. Joe, you dont have a set of Herrings I could try do you???

Dlaw and Bruce were the focal point of my Marathon Article. They'll have great coverage in Extreme Boats mag. Not the next issue, but the one after that.

I'm just glad that they came home without a scratch.
