Thanks for posting. Never seen the old mans boat on video(lunasea).

Looks like 2002? Think wild wild west rolled in 01? and switched motors to the international the next year.

Great video. An couple thoughts:

The Young brothers looked very young. Hard and sad to know they're both gone.

Glenn Holland is the man.

Andy Gove is also the man. (the shot of the UFO spooling up and taking off is priceless)

Apologies in advance if this is someone on this forum, but who is the turd wearing the Yankees visor at 16:48, and again at 18:27? Where I live, a lot more SW than where this was shot, a guy can get in some trouble for pulling something like that.

Wow, if I watched this video 100 times, I wouldn't have picked up on that.

Great video, wish there were more videos out there about Lobster boat racing. There needs to be a movie made about the subject, but Hollywood would probably mess it up :rolleyes:. I too noticed how young the Young brothers looked only 10 years ago. They seem like nice guys.

Glenn Holland is always entertaining to listen to, standing there against the building with his sun glasses on.

For the life of me, I cannot believe Discovery channel hasn't produced some seasons of Lobster boat racing. That would sell like hotcakes. I think it could become as popular as Deadliest Catch. It has all the elements you need to make a great show.

It might not have enough mass appeal, but it would be a lot more interesting than a lot of the "reality TV" shows out there. Sure would be a lot more wholesome than a lot of the programming these days.

I never cared until I went to college with a few Yankee fans. My attitude changed just about immediately. But the same can be said for some Red Sox fans too, especially after they finally won in 2004.


Great video despite the questionable sports attire!
