"The Halloween Run"
The sea trials of "Nuff Respect" continue with increased focus on animating
every system to function flawlessly and achieving maximum potential.
Technicians from Bobby Moore's Custom Marine and Douglas Skater Marine have
been working tirelessly to see that she lives up to her name. If talent,
dedication and sheer willpower are the ingredients of a successful racing
effort they are not to be found lacking in this project. From my vantage

Hull modifications and fine tuning allowed her to be
regarded by all as truly a cutting edge effort. Automobiles were backed up
on the palm lined MacArthur Causeway for blocks, as drivers craned their

for freighters and luxury cruise ships, with 4000 horsepower blasting from
her 8 polished stainless exhaust pipes, echoing brutally against the
skyscrapers of beautiful downtown Miami.
More than one tugboat captain got

she will make her run in the hope of becoming World Champion next week in
