The trouble with the U-21 on Saturday was a gear box. Don't know if the same issue that's nagged them at the last couple of races. In the Tri-Cities, it was smoking constantly and they had to limit water time to avoid overheating it. It forced the team to withdraw from 1B Saturday at SD, but should be OK for Sunday.

U-16 spun a turbine and snapped a blade on the prop which chewed up the boat in heat 1A. Announcer Steve Montgomery said it blew through the cowling in two locations on the cowling and the bottom of the boat. The crew will work to patch it up, and put in a new engine, overnight and expects to be fine.
