I called LCM today to see if this run was true and it was canceled due to too much debris in the Lake so they are shooting for a couple weeks from now

Your kidding, right? I mean, I thought these bad azz OL's were built for big ocean, wave crushing use. And now a few sticks is stopping them? Tell them to fire up that new lake cleaner, log eatin machine. Wise choice though, if it is the real reason. Not like they haven't been ready before and packed it up early.

So does it take such ridiculous HP to make this boat run at those speeds, that if the motor starts they are thrilled? So far all that has been proven is that RC and now PP have issues building motors for this purpose.

Besides, I call BS to this whole story. Randy, (LCM) knows damn well the conditions of the lake this time of yr. It's just like every other yr. Why would they even consider a run there with this knowledge.

When was the offical word decided to cancel?

And apache guys are NOT hostile. It's something else all together, but I'm not sure what.

But for everyone's sake, let's not turn this into another Apache rant!!!!!!!!
Well...if you think about it.....

Apache won't have an opportunity to up the record before the Miami boat show either........

We'll finally get an answer to the question we've been eagerly asking......
