    Default LaPorte indiana update

    I had a few steps to overcome but testing went well. I had to do cell training first. Strapped in a capsule, holding my breath, flipped upside down had to get out with life jacket and helmet on. Had to do it twice. Passed that. Tech inspection, passed. Running the boat, 6 point course with one right hand turn was tricky to say the least. First prop did good, 83 mph top end and second prop 89.3 mph. I was one of the slowest out there. Had a great time, still not sure I like the roundy round races. There was 2 crashes and all the drivers were ok.

    My 120 motor might be back before Bay City. "Supposed" to have been a front runner. It'll take some time to get used to the turns, running the course with a bunch of other boats though.
