Well the sounds of the monster offshore racing boats are still thundering in the background just across the road from our house on Manasota Key. It has been an exciting day for observers of this new phenomenon in this area. There were certainly large numbers of fans watching from the beaches all along the lower key and soaking up the aura of the bizarre, exciting and sometimes baffling scene that is super fast powerboat racing. One thing for sure it is a new sensory experience watching and listening to the powerful
rumbling of these amazing boats and thrilling to their almost unbelievable
speeds across a picture perfect calm blue sea under a few puffy white clouds.
