    huh? that's got me puzzled....

    it isn't the same though....
    watched a couple of races - meh.
    like NASCAR only more boring...


    I guess I liked it better when it was paying for my lifestyle, now, not so much :D

    I like it more now that the races are on TV. It allows us to see and understand the various strategies and the actions it takes to get the most out of these boats. :deal

    I remember the Kiwi's cheating to try and win it.. but they failed.. still it hasnt been the "same" since the winged keel boats.. but it could be argued that it is better.

    I think only fat Dennis believed a plastic boat was "cheating"...

    I raced on the trial horse, KZ 5, not a bad old bucket... and no worries about dropping pennies in the bilge like the aluminum sisters.
