Holy crap...ping over the side! If they were able to survive the SS race without busting something, they've got skillz.

Back in the day Cam started a thread about Ronnie when he was EPRIBed out of his first try to make it to Hawaii (didn't have much knowledge, had an old, beat up boat, lost a rudder post, etc.). He faced the heat from that pretty well, and vowed to learn and try again.

That latter part is why I wish the guy well. He was pretty honest about his screw-ups and seems to really be trying to do right this time. I can respect that.
