Heat 1A


Great first lap to this heat, but it quickly turned into a parade with Steve David as the grand marshall.

Jeff Bernard led the fleet across the start finish line in lane two and tried to hold David to the buoys, but the Oberto had too much speed in the back chute, and pulled away just before reaching the north turn.

Once David got his commanding lead, Bernard settled back in to second place to save equipment, as did J. Michael Kelly in the U-13.

We lost the U-3 Hoss Mortgage Investors Too in the north turn just at the end of the first lap. Might be the end of their weekend as the boat flashed a yellow light and went dead in the water. It was the last engine that was available to the team.

Final results (unofficial)
1. U-6 Oh Boy! Oberto, Steve David
2. U-5 FormulaBoats.com, Jeff Bernard
3. U13 Graham Trucking, J. Michael Kelly
4. U-17 Our Gang Racing Team, Kip Brown
DNF U-3 Hoss Mortgage Investors Too, Jimmy King

I'm tired of hearing this crap about pulling back 'to save equipment' jesus christ people, it's a freakin' race!! THIS is what pisses Hydro fans off!! We're there to see a real show, not have people 'save equipment'!! If your boat doesn't last until the next heat, then I guess you just weren't good enough!! GO HARD OR GO HOME!!!

I guess if it catches fire, 'again', then it does. so be it. GO HARD OR GO HOME!!

I'm sure on a personal level, these 'racers' are great people and it seems they have fantastic crews. However, I am TIRED TO DEATH of hearing all of the constant problems that make boat racing so frustrating to watch in the first place. This may be one of the reasons why it just isn't catching on!

Figure out a way to put a freakin' boat together that won't fall apart, and there you go. There is the competition that the fans want to see! NO PUSSIES PLEASE!!!
