Nope, never expected to win but she did run very well given the testing done beforehand.
Was won by Bernie who runs nice old submerged drive very basic boats.

Ummmn, how do you expect to win when you stop halfway over there, pull the boat out the water, adjust the drive with a spanner to change the angle, drill water escape holes in the transom, discuss the waves you might get on the way back etc - all with the stop watch still running!
