    Anybody been or competed in the Beverly (MA) Homecoming lobster boat races? Looks like only a few boats turn up every year. I'm local so I'm going to run my boat. I'm sure I'll get smoked, but I'm also sure it'll be a good time.

    It's July 29th if anyone's interested.

    Some of these guys put insane amounts of hp under the deck. Seems like street drag racers turned lobster cap's. ;) I always liked the docking race the best though.

    I plan to be there. I've emailed the harbor master about signing up to race, but no response as of yet. And yeah, it seems like it's pretty small.

    It's a good day on the water. Fun event different classes depending on turnout the amount of classes allowed. After we have a banding contest everyone can tie up at the harbor center or public pier and the first race starts at 2 so try and get there before that so we can get you in correct races. I'll try and send a flyer in next post. Hope to see you there.
