Snow, freezing conditions, and cancelled airline fights couldn’t keep Powerboat Nation away, but it sure did wreck havoc on the rest of the group. The bad news is that Bill Pyburn, Chris Bradley, Jason Ventura, the guys from Hardin Marine and the remainder of the entourage weren’t able to make the connecting flights and will have to reschedule their trips.

The good news for me was I got almost a full day and a half with Peter Hledin from SKATER powerboats. I learned a bunch of stuff and got a history lesson that is worthy of a book itself.

Kelly Sills’s boat was in paint and it is moving along well. Will it be at the Miami show? We don’t know and it will remain a maybe!
