Looks pretty cool Rick! I did the patrol for the Catalina Ski Race a couple years ago... that was pretty cool. Try and go down and make some friends with those boys and get a ride next year! :D I have gotten rides in a few boats for the SCOPE Poker Run here in Long Beach over the past few years... had the time of my life!


Poker Runs are a blast... even though BigMac thinks that they are nothing but big drunk fests and all of their participants are drunks too! :mad:

Not that it is a bad Idea, but what am I missing?? You'd think the drivers/ passengers of the boats that are doing 75+ would need one.....

Most Poker Runs require life jackets to be on all at all times for all involved with the event. I know that my buddy took his jacket off when he had to crawl into the engine hatch to look at a broken blower belt and was immediately disqualified when the patrol boat saw him without a jacket...

Here is the flyer for the poker run I go to in September.../

Been around it my whole life and love it to death. Most of these guys started out small and have worked their way up to these boats, making them very good drivers with a lot of seat time, which is what it takes to run these boats, especially the cats, those are a whole other beast!

No accidents that I'm aware of. All captains were required to wear a wrist band to identify them as the driver...............If any driver was caught drinking their boat was disqaulified.............I did not see any drivers drinking until the party that night............I had a BLAST!!!

Wow! We're talking some serious generalization here. But as long as we're overgeneralizing, yeah, alcohol plays a big part of poker runs, and alcohol has no place in association with the operation of high-powered motor vehicles.

Apparently you are saying it's OK to drink and drive fast vehicles. I do indeed disagree with that point of view.

I believe you did...


I've seen a lot of poker runs - motorcycles, snowmobiles, boats, and I've read about quite a few others this year. They are generally nothing but big drunks. Jumping to the conlusion that alcohol was involved in this accident is absolutely reasonable IMHO. Both Bruce Gibson and Gordon Mineo appear to have been serious about boating safety, but that is certainly not the overall reputation of poker runs in general.

No, sitting pretty still at 72.2 hours. I think that is all we will get this year. I want to start going dirt biking and do a few non-boat related vacations. Kind of warn out to be honest. 13 weekends away from home got to me!
