Have pm'd jf to see if we can put pics up quicker, also helecopter footage to follow, the offending cigarette (first pic) was on its first outing sincr delivery to the bvi, he was the fastest boat out that day running between 112 and 120 gps (tatletale) fortunatley when he hit the reef, no one was injured, but the boat is now in a container headed back to the us for repair!!!
tons more pics to come, but i only have dialup

When he gets the bottom repaired he should also get the speedo replaced for a higher reading one!

112 - 120 gps. Imagine how fast it would have been with both blowers going.

Ben did you understand tony's post about the speedo?
how could he have GPS'd at 120 if the speedo only goes up to 100?
