[quote="Fastjeff"] Could you identify who' driving which?

APBA policy has been to not publish a list of boat  #s and names,
and in this day , I don't necessarily disagree with that .
Also the # is who the boat is registered to, and where from,
but not always   who the driver is ...
ie; 9A is Quinn's #, but is that him driving ??
Doubt it is Granpa  Larry though  :eek:
All one can really say is that a  'N' boat  is from NY,
'A' is from ME, 'F' from FL & GA   etc.
Not sure who all on this site races but ;
522-P is George B from PA,  22-P is Chloe,
Larry R has a few  'A' s registered including 9-A ,
and I am 66-F , which confounds it all,  as I am sitting here with my boats in Ont .
If u have seen any of my boats   in a race recently, it is NOT me in it  :lol:
Any one else ?
