Results from Franklin,Pa.

Post by mercsami »

Racing results from Franklin,Pa. Weather was perfect.
Chloe's finishes:
Sat.-ASH-2nd. Sun.-ASH-3rd.
ASR-5th. ASR- DNF--Pinched a fuel line with her foot,motor shut off after the start line.I had the fuel line too long,it got between her foot and the transom.

Not sure yet if we have any video,we are snake bit with these GoPro's. Can't seem to have any luck getting footage.
On Sun. in ASR,Chloe and another boat came together at the start,the other boat came up on her steering bar,took out the whole chine front to back on his boat. The front of his boat punched thru our side where the camera was mounted,broke the mounting and punched the camera into Chloe's lap.I think the camera is ok,I am doing repairs to out boat to get ready for the Northeastern Championships this coming weekend.No injuries to any driver,boats can be repaired.

Good job Joe, Chloe and Team Sees. Glad both drivers are ok. Joe - don't take valuable time worrying about the Go-Pro's and getting video. Get the boat back together and be ready to run. The camera should be when and if you have time. We love video, but we understand priorities too! Good luck at the championships!

Just finished the repairs to Chloe's runabout,carbon fibered the damaged area,its now just as strong as new,maybe even better.Thank goodness for fast curing epoxy.
We are good to go at Whitney Point,NY.
