A good day Mr F cheers for the ride down there matey..

A good event but the sight of more V24's cracking up is a bit of a worrying site.

Was the podium finish left as the final conculsion to the V24 race or did the enquiry alter that?

The bacardi boat you could see a two inch section with cracks on both sides running horzontally down the boat at the fattest point. Down both sides. Like the deck trying to leave the hull.
Looked so straight that you would think it a taped joint on the inside over a seam, the tape being the strongest part and fracturing occuring above and below it.

Terry (V3) lost his mirrors and the trim reservior bottle broke up ditching the oil to the bilges and stopping the trim system. A wing working loose. The washers caved into cones shapes as the bolts tried to pull through.

Someone else retired with a split fuel tank. Colourama?? I think this boat also had the stress marks down the side. But not anywhere near as bad as the first boat.

Dave arthur, Im told the wheel came into his chest, didnt know whether it was the whole dash assy that came adrift, then.

F2 Results

John Puddifoot won it with Mel Wilby in Cardinal Sin second after being overtaken on the last lap? We struggled through the first half of the race with rain squalls and hail at one point to get third with no damage at all!

The diesel boats got away in the first few laps where we could hardly keep the boat in the water and when it flattened off they were too far in front to catch.

We were very pleased to be first petrol boat home and are looking forward to the 104 mile race at Exmouth next weekend!
