  1. quick Regatta recap

    Jet Boats
    We had great weather on Friday with the water a little low, making for a huge sandbar and good river racing. By noon the sandbar had 25-30 boats ready to play. It was the optimum amount of people and boats to be safe with good water. It seemed like everyone who had a boat raced at least once...
  2. So let's re-cap. How's America doing with unemployment??

    Political Rhetoric
    Of course the BLS statistics are showing better each month (6.7 now) because of all those who have stopped looking for work who are no longer counted by BLS as unemployed but the honest truth (words democrats can handle) is that we're in deep doo doo! What percentage of American workers are...

    Other than a little bit of wind on Saturday afternoon, one couldn't have asked for better weather for the NJBA Fall Nationals held at Lake Ming, in Bakersfield Ca this past weekend. The boat count was healthy and competition in nearly every class was on its game. Joe Morgan returned in Here...

    I need to thank quite a few people for helping out this weekend: Hustler and HBjet-unbelievably good pit crew right there.

  11. Starter Recap

    I wanted to say "thanks" for all of the input to my starter inquiry several months ago. One gentleman posted "buy a Meziere, it will pull a freight train down the tracks". After pondering spending that much money for a while, that statement stuck with me enough to talk to the Meziere tech, and...
  12. Elsinore recap

    Jet Boats
    gotta thank the best crew on the planet. Joe, Randy, Robert, and Randy guys killed it this weekend and we had zero drama in the 999 pit. Turkeymelt was the man this weekend, taking out BP and Roznos I think?? Kjell got a taste of the squeeze and is not taking n20 introveniously (sp?)...
  13. Jack Smith Park 2009 -recap

    The nicest gathering of "true" hot rod boats ever assembled!! The Park was super nice and the city really made us feel really welcome.

  14. East meets west Bartlett (recap)

    West Coast - South
    No doubt one of my best days boating ever. Water was flat all day long and you could take speed runs at will. Kept the old Ford pinned for most the day and burned all my gas. Horseshoes, beverages, amazing eats (thanks Vin dog and Big Ern aka grillmasters), great group of people and thanks to...
  15. wf recap

    Jet Boats
    thanks to everyone that helped and offered to help out in the 999 pit. Jet4Fun and my cousin Randy took good care of me all week.

    Jet Boats
    The weather sucked balls all weekend until late afternoon today. cold and windy. most of the jets looked like they were struggling to stay hooked up in the sloppy water. I know i was struggling big time. couldnt manage better than an 8.81 during qualifying. miller took me out in round one of...
