Mr. Offshore Award goes to (drum roll, please...)

Mike Paganelli with 180.75 total laps for the day!

Running 5 boats for 4 rounds each really tests ones ability to, well, have their crap together. Pags pulled through, even with an exploded driveline in his T Offshore cat that ripped out a section of the hull. It needed serious surgery...all while he's running 4 other classes. The guy can hustle, both on and off the water!

Congratulations, Pags! Don't worry, I'll keep the 1st Place Q Offshore plate highly visible in my garage for the next year.

I'm still getting caught up at work, but I'll feed some info about our event throughout the week.

First off, hats off to Jason Sims for taking High Points again this year. If he wasn't winning the class, he was typically second. His consistency, and a top performing LSH Whip is what got him past my point total. We were literally within a few points of each other at the end of each day.

Team Points went to The Scottsdale Model Boaters, with me, Jim Osborne and Ted McKay making up the team. Both Jim and Ted come from the nitro/gas world and have aquired a few FE boats during the past year or so and they are right up there with the best of us. In fact, Jim only signed up for 4 classes and we had to pick 3 of them for Team Points. He finished strong in all 4 of his classes.

N-2 Mono started off the event and it was dominated by the Delta Force 26's. Legg Lake has great water and these boats really sang that high RPM tune with every heat.

P Sport Hydro-It was hard to get past Jason's Whip with full P Power, but congratulations to Jim Osborne for taking 2nd place with a UL-1 powered Insane hull.

P Hydro. What can I say. Twaits in action. Pure and simple.

P-Ltd Cat was a very competitive class as well and congratulations to Buaas for almost sweeping it, and for Tony collecting 1400 points as well. Ted McKay dusted off his box-stock Geico (ok-not stock prop), complete with inline rudder, and gave chase to the field. He pulled off 3rd place, too.

Q Mono was a great class and I thought I shot myself in the foot in the first round as my boat barely left the pits. Didn't tighten the collet. But, I was able to win the next 3 rounds to take the win.

N-2 Offshore. Talk about evenly tuned boats. Sims and I were only 1/4 lap apart at the end of the 4th round, with Sims taking the win.

P-Ltd Offshore. The top 4 drivers were only separated by 1 lap. Jason took the win, but congratulations to Lenny Blake for taking 2nd place with a newly built Titan 29. Also, Osborne was right there in 3rd place with a Cyberstorm.

P-Offshore. My Titan was running very well all weekend. I finished with 45 laps total over 4 rounds, and that was the top lap count for any offshore class that ran that day. Mike Pags and Ted McKay were tied going into the 4th round and were also in the same heat. Ted and I spilled that secret to Pags on the drivers stand because he wasn't sure of the standings, and those two did battle for the next 4 minutes. Mike got the start, and never let his lead over Ted go. They were never more than 6 or so boat lengths apart for the entire race, with Pags being the lead boat at the end of the race, and we used that to break the tie as they did finish on the same exact lap count.

One fantastic moment during the 3rd round was between me, Ted and Mike Shaunnessy. All three of us started and rounded turn 1 and it seemed that I had lane 1, Ted had lane 2, and Mike had lane 1 1/2. All three of us blasted down the 400 foot backstretch and all 3 of us knew that Shaunnessy's green cat was between me and Ted somewhere, but nobody could see it...including Mike. I actually thought he backed off or that I would pull away from him. Nope. All 3 boats maintained the most perfect lane direction and we just couldn't see his cat behind my boat and rooster for what seemed like 4 seconds. I got scared and dived for the offshore pin early, cutting it, and then exposing Mike's cat so he could them steer it around the pin!

Q Offshore. Pags has had a good run winning Q Offshore for many, many years, but I de-throned him this year. He's pissed. Not really. But kind of.

T Offshore. Mike had a driveline explode in his cat, tearing a section of the hull and all. I thought he was done. After all, he was running all 5 classes that day. Nope, somehow he managed to find time to rebuild it and get the cat back on the water. However, the lost laps cost him and Tyler had a very good running hull. Ken was running a new full on 10S build and it still needs a little more setup time.

N-2 Sport. More Jason Sims and his Whiplash in action. It's a combo that's really hard to beat.

P-Ltd Mono. I braved the smaller hull choice with this class, using a Delta Force 26, because Legg Lake lays down nicely. Congratluations to Darin for taking 3rd place with the RTR Impulse 31, too.

OPC-The highlight of the event, hands down. We had all chunked heat before the 4th round, except for Kylie Morana. Her consistent driving helped her pull off 4 very strong finishes for the over all win. On the last lap of the 4th round, she was getting chased by some lunatic driving a purple Cobra and it was a drag race to the finish, with Kylie edging out the Cobra by 2 boat lengths. She got to take the celabratory swim in Legg Lake!

Crackerbox. Congratulations to Dick Roberts. Also, Kim McKay took 2nd place at her very first FE Nationals!

P Mono. Pags was so upset at me for taking Q Offshore, that his main goal in life that day was to keep P Mono away from me. I've never won P Mono and I thought this was my year. I finished the first 3 rounds with a perfect 1200 points, and Mike wasn't far behind. Going into the 4th round, I had a commanding lead after 3 laps, but got caught up in some kind of cross wake or something and as my boat rounded turn 1 it took flight, submarined, then came up upside down, all I could hear was Pags yelling in the pits! He got me. But I know he's losing sleep over the thought of the Q Offshore award hanging on my wall.

Q Hydro. It was all Pags. 1500 points. I will have one of these next year, too.

T Sport Hydro. Buaas has a great running T boat and dominated this class and 1/8th Scale as well.

1/10th Modern. Congratulations to Ted McKay for his first FE title! Yes-he got to swim in Legg Lake, too.

N-2 Hydro. Darin said to me early in the morning that he was going to throw in his cat just to get some racing in. Turns out he scored 1300 points and got the class win!

P-Ltd Hydro. I think I will frame the heat sheet that had me, Buaas, Grim, Twaits, Stark and Morana. The amount of talent on the drivers stand was impressive. 29 points separated 1st through 3rd place.

P-LSH. Again, the Sims/whiplash combo is a tough one to crack! As always, this was the most attended class of the entire event.

1/10th Vintage went to Leonard Feeback, who has gone nearly 40 years since his last National Championship! Congratulations!

T Mono. I don't remember what Tyler was running here, but I think it was his 6S Q boat. That's what I was running, and Mark and Ken had monster 10S monos on the water. Ken had the boat to beat, but he had a charging issue during round 2 and he needed to pull his boat into the infield for a DNF. I locked down 1400 points for the win.

1/8th Scale. Buaas ripped off a 1600 pt day with his Executone. It's a very good running hull.

SoCal FE and the Scottsdale Model Boaters offer our special thanks to Lenny Blake for calling the race, Ted McKay for pulling his travel trailer from Az to provide pit security, Jim Osborne for being my go-to guy for just about everything, Tracy Osborne for handling the sign ups, raffle and post-race data for the NAMBA website, Pat McDonald for meticulously keeping the heat sheets and scoring updated, revised and posted, Mark Grim for handling the Whittier Narrows/Legg Lake Park items, keeping the course set, doing some retrieval boat motor tuning and providing me a socket set to change my truck battery mid-race on Saturday, Kim Grim for busting her butt on Sunday getting the Drivers Stand cleaned, then spending 2 days cooking us a most fabulous lunch, Jeff Michaud for helping us with lunch on Saturday and for having a happy hour party/taco feed at his home on Thursday, and Mike Pags for throwing down his credit card for the alcohol at the banquet.

And lastly, a special thank you to my roommate, Dougie Twaits, for hanging in there with a positive attitude for this event, knowing that 84 pounds of his FE gear is (still) lost at UPS. He had enough gear and loaner equipment to get boats on the water, but it's just not the same as if he had his own equipment.

Dave Newland is a consummate gentleman and a great race boat driver, he was a picture of sportsmanship when his boat in P-Mono flipped and the championship was mine, he looked at me and came off thhe drivers stand and congratulated me, I wish I could be so gracious in defeat, and when I say defeat I dont mean me beating him I mean him hitting a turtle or something and ruining his perfect P-Mono day!!!!
A special thanks to Jason Grimm who I met a few minutes before my T-Offshore boat ripped it's drive line out, and Tyler who had all the stuff I needed to fix the boat. Jason and I (mostly Jason) worked on it and got it back in the water for the next heat. Not only was the flexshaft torn it took out the stuffing tube, the bottom of the hull was ripped open and moved the motor mount, if not for him I would have not just lost T Offshore (I ended up in 2nd) I would have lost the Mr Offshore Title, Believe it or not Dave Newland finished in 2nd only running 4 classes and ended up only 12 laps behind me, (talk about having your stuff together)!!!!!
Another special thanks to Doug Twaits, he lost 3 boats, radios, batteries, tools and a collection of props probably second to none. He stuck with it raced with borrowed stuff and had a good time. No one has taught me more about boat racing, and boat setup than Doug (I know theres some stuff he's not telling me)...LOL. with all his tough luck he was still there to spot and coach me, Ken Haines, a bunch of others and especially Jason Simms to a High pts Championship. His coaching on the drivers stand is almost as good as having him drive your boat, Thanks for everything Douggy.
And Lastly meeting guys I've been talking to on the Ph and internet for years and all the new guys I met made the nats this year that much more special!!! Racing in Q and T Offshore with Dave and Tyler were some of the most exciting races i've ever been in.
