    Starting this weekend in Boothbay and Rockland. I was supposed to be home but an early baby changed everything! I know Tim Toppins from Downeast will be there with a few boats, and the weather looks good, hopefully a good turn out. The weather looks beautiful, and a buddy will be out on my boat, say hello who ever makes it. And POST some pictures!!

    Great turn out at Boothbay Harbor, and some really good racing. Even though it wasn’t the fastes boat there Blue Eyed Girl is some empressive to watch. A working lobster boat going 40+ MPH is just awesome. I was also happy to see that the fastest boat of the day was a diesel! Zach you looked good coming down the track. Jon I saw your boat out and around, and she looks good as well.

    B bay was good, great day. I sucked, 3rd outta 3. I guess 29.2 knots isn't fast anymore.
    We did run up to rockland, last again. Boat acted funny, she didn't want to spool up. Oh well.
