    Default The Problem Was....

    I didn't have anyone to race with. I made more laps at the Winter Nationals than most of the drivers...

    Notice, I learned how to wear my hat without losing it!!!

    Those little 15's have TORQ.... Especially with the stock foot...

    That thing really hauled!

    Default Actually, I didn't...

    It was me, but I didn't call it "WACKING", I was trying to figure out a way to not get me butt wet, everytime I went out... Seems, the "THING" had water in it, and I was thinking...I always thing, that maybe, if I landed on shore, I could drain it....Well, some much for plan "A"...

    Default That was...

    That was one of them DUDES racing, that I had to go tow in about every 5 minutes....

    Mercguy may actually know who that is, I don't ...

    I towed a bunch of guys in...did a great job, too, except when I pulled J.W. Meyer's C Runabout in...sort of went too close to the shore and fill his upside down boat's gas tank full of sand...

    Well, had he not turned over, I wouldn't have had to drag him in....(But I know getting sand out of any gas tank is a PAIN)....

    Default It was the wind...

    I was trying to stay out of the "RACERS" way and not make waves, that always made me mad, as a racer....so, I was near the sea wall going slow, when the wind strated to push me near the wall, when I gave her some throttle, she wouldn't go cause JW's boat was in the mud.....I felt like the SERIOUSLY OLD FART that I AM....
