Ok a GREAT day 1 at Blue Lake!! The weather was awesome, the water was fast and the crowd was small!
We started off with John Finch/Steve Sutton setting and great gas scale hydro SAW record ( I don’t have the speeds with me right now).
A few of you know that I have built a small N Stock (and Super Stock) hydro…I have no problem telling you that I don’t know anything about FE, but I do know some of the best FE boaters in the US ! With lots of help (that’s not a strong enough word…with lots of DIRECTING!) from Tyler Garrard, Chris Harris and Darin Jordan I have been on a very steep learning curve the last few months!! So I have only run the boat a few times but was able to break the N Stock hydro SAW record just before lunch today and then able to bump it up a few times. My last times were... ave 4.086 (55.06 mph), fast pass 3.906 (57.6 mph). I have a few more things to try tomorrow before I put the Super Stock motor in the boat so maybe I can bump it a little bit more.
This video is not one of my record passes, but it’s all I got on video.
It is always a pleasure to have Buckshot show up to Blue Lake and today was no exception! He brought a couple of awesome boats with him and ended up getting his 90 MPH patch with is twin hydro! Congratulations buddy!
The last fun story for today was best little buddy Jason OBrien get his brand new 90 hydro running!! He has done a fantastic job scratch building this boat from a set of JAE plans! His goal is to go 100 and I’m thinking he’s going to get there with no problem!
Im ready for day 2!!
