New boat/motor road trip

Postby mercsami » Sat Mar 14, 2020 2:22 am

The boat racing transporting service is up and running at full speed. We just got back from a road trip [ 5 hrs. round trip ] to pick up a new boat and Yamato 321 race motor that was purchased late last fall. The rig started its trip in east Florida, went to Atlanta Georgia, then to South Jersey, then to Kempton ,Pa., where we picked up the rig, then to our home in Danville, Pa.  These follow racers are the best, they want to help in anyway they can.
                              We will be running the following classes in 2020:
                 Chloe --- ASH,20SSH, and possibly 300SSH, maybe even BSR. She is also is a hired gun for a race in a modified 500 Runabout.
                 Joe III--  300SSH, and BSH, possibly OSY400 for a few races.
If I can get Chloe interested in 300SSH, she could be running in the same class as her Dad, how cool would that be? We have the necessary equipment to do this, just need to do some convincing.
                 I know its hard to believe, but Chloe will be a college grad. come May 6 ,2020. She is ready to do her student teaching in the fall, then its on to a position as a High School Agriculture Teaching Position. She is a 4.0 student at Delaware Valley University.
