Default Cigarette sighting I-95 Maryland

Ok I was off work today So I went to Baltimore Harbor. Going Down I seen a large white and red boat with the word Fire on the side being towed North Bound I-95.Kinda looked like one of those Apache boats It was going so fast i couldn't make it out. Coming home I seen a Newer Cig being towed South Bound across Maryland /Delaware border.

Yepper, it's one of them there resin buckets!

That was Fire Water. They raced in the OPA finals in Cambridge. You should have drove your a$$ down there! We did an 80 boat poker run on Saturday and watched the races on Sunday. Absolutely a spectactular weekend.

yep that was me pulling firewater back to philly this am. it will be there until a decision is made on the philly race. if no race it will be heading south on i 95 to get ready for key west. how fast was i going anyway? had a 3:00 flight back to lauderdale. NOTHING RUNS LIKE AN APACHE.

That apache looked like it was out for a sunday cruise this weekend. Not that it was a very rough course, but the boat never moved. That was a bad boat. Anyone know what size motors all 3 of them were?
