I wasn't slamming any event either. What I WAS saying is how I felt acouple of yrs bk. Seemed like we weren't wanted. I came back this yr with 4 boats. To show support for the Bass Lake event, Chris Blevens, & Brian Lynch. I will apoligize for taking your post about the kandy painted boats, race engine comment. I would like to say. If you want to see more of these boats, guys need to bring them out. Im always trying to get more vintage/ custom ski boats to the Needles event. They just don't show up. Wish they would. I, like you Spuke appreciate all types of custom boats.
