        The clock does not know the boat number it is always the driver. yea there are some hard calls that have to be made by the judges stand. Yea it is 60 seconds.

            Well

            I would swear that a Mean Red boat would be the one with the wake in the pic...

            Congrats to Jimmy for running a smart race and getting the National Championship crown !

                Who ever was on the outside must have counted in his head like I did when I was racing. You know 60-57-53-28..

                      Steve thanks for the compliment. They are straight cut gears that I got from Jim Mckean. He has a thread on this website.

                        Steve, you need to cut 12" off the boat lol. Glad you guys did good. To win the Nat's you have got to be right on the clock Corrly (sp) did good to come that close it's very hard to win if you don't come out of the first turn in the front . Also Steve Sawyer built the chambers for that eng the are his design.
