The legend Mike Hazelwood was back on the water showing how its done. What a privilege to meet the man and see him competing against his old rival John Battleday. John did not give up without a fight.

    Think they were sorting the finer details of the rumble. Well, before the cracked ribs put paid to that on the Sunday

    @GAJ0004 I went around the same time. But he was on a small pond pretty close to an old Howard Johnson. His was the first 38 I ever saw. His son was a nice little skier at the time. It was a lot of fun.

    @rayn I was at the same place. His daughter was there too. She had her dad wrapped around her little finger for sure.. I am guessing she was around 4 at the time.. I was 24 years old at the time. It was my first traveling vacation by myself. It was behind an old Howard Johnson.. There was a huge spider in its web above the dock area. I still am trying to find out what is was. It was half the size of a tarantula, and was black with yellow strips all over it. I have not been back to Florida since 2000. I was struggling with 36 MPH at the time, and I went to Andy and Deena Mapple's school two years later. Between the two I started getting into 32off after that.
