Was that back in your monohull days? I can't believe there's anyway that you were able to get something to your MOB quickly enough for them to grab onto before that rocket of a tri moved out of range...



Just kidding SD. I don't really believe that your tri is that fast.

Okay, this time I'm really just kidding.
