Watching that nose high video of reggie making his last run ..I could just picture the inevitable chine walk ..But it seemed to fly unusually well for a deep V

I watched the video when I got home and believe me, while it was great, it was nothing like watching that boat literally fly by. There was a tangible excitement in the air and you could feel the vibration of the horsepower all the way down to your toes. As I said standing on the pier so early that morning, there is nothing like the sound of horsepower in the morning!
