    Default callling out the fast Hot boats!

    There is a lot of talk going on. After two years at lake James I have only seen one race. In that race I beat KAM back to the island. I Know that I have the slowest BBC. I want to see some side by side racing. Who is up to it?

    Is it Summer yet?

    If you want to see some side by side racing go to Augusta or High Piont. That s the real races. Thay have safty equipment and water control.
    Side by side racing at Lake James is a good way to get somebody killed. Just sayin.

    I think where "Catch A Cole" is coming from is that there are several existing, and some on the verge of completion boats that will be able to run 120 mph + in less than 5 seconds. This, in an uncontrolled water situation will be dangerous. Throw in, no organized rescue, alcohol, bravado, adrenalin and general stupidity and it's a recipe for for possible bad news.

    Having said that, we can only hope for the best, be as safe as possible and have a good time. Everyone that straps into a fast boat must realize the consequences.
