I'm ok Nothing like having a wedgie as your Buddy tries to Pull you back on board and having that nice clean delaware river water rushing in your Mouth


Plus it helps that I had a clean pair of undies on my boat.

Had a great time this weekend, thanks OPA. There were a few sweep boats who did a fantastic job of trying to clear the course. I've never seen such an enormous amount of debris as we saw from the battleship this weekend.

My hat's off to the racers, they put on one helluva good show.

I never seen so much BIG stuff in that river.

It was So damn funny. Just when the second heat was about to start. I heard the radio crackle "sweep boat 3-5 can you get the lumber over by the Coast Guard cutter in the middle of the race coarse? I said SURE no problem. When I rounded the CG bow I see 5-6 CG guys holding a tree waiting for me after about 10 mins of trying to get this thing in tow, 2 NJ state police guys came by and helped me lasso that tree up.


I'm trying to get back to the shoreline as quick as possible so they didn't have to hold up the race anymore. Just then I realize the race isn't held up here they come and man It was awesome to finally see Powerboats racing in Camden

Way to Go Ron! Great day once again
Can't wait until 2005

It's great to read about the Nj Battleship selling all their goods. I'm sure they want Us all back next year again .

Other then that It was a GREAT day!
Capo - sorry bro. Didn't mean to rock the boat. I hope you are ok.
I finally got to meet you this weekend and then I put you in the drink. Sorry man. I guess I owe you some Swipes for payment.
