    Hell yes!! "Southwindsal" is back!! Testing in an undisclosed location in the central valley this weekend LOL Sal brought out the Southwind for some testing after spending a ton of time putting his boat together.
    It all went well and I think he is happy with the results.

    Thanks for the kind words guys! I have to say its all team work! Lots of homework and questions! I have to thank racer J, all my friends and family who helped me put it together! i have to say i was not shure how it was going to run with a lot of people saying swtd are to heavy and takes alot to get them to run! i am so happy how it turned out! she leaves hard and sets like a champ! Compared to what i have ran, v- bottoms. she is a whole different ride! like a caddilac! no more white knuckle holding on for my life! Ok, maybe a little! Still have some work to do. Thanks all and see you on the water!!

    With the way the few swtd that come out to the events run I'm pretty sure that hole heavy cant run without a fueler pushing it bs should be put to bed. they run just as good as any other boat out there w similar power. There will be always someone faster thats life. good work on the boat that setup looks like its carrying the ass well.

    Sal boat looks Great! I'm sure you will be right there in the lagoon defending the honor of Aha Quin . See you at the river. Lots of time to test this winter without any crowds.
