Without a Heat 3C, it makes it tough for Jean Theoret and U-37 Beacon Plumbing, who got zero points yesterday after a DNF in Heat 1A.

From ABRA: The Chevrolet Cup at Seafair makes the first two elimination heats extremely important for the unlimited hydroplane teams as the points awarded within them makes entry into heats 3A and 3B possible. Only the top 12 boats after the first two sets will be permitted to move on. After the third grouping, the top six boats will be entered into the final.
