Perfect conditions and a competitive fleet of hydroplanes made for one whale of a weekend in the Tri-Cities. Heat 2B, in which the U-96 edged the U-7, U-5, and U-1 in a spectacular four-boat duel may be one of the best heats of racing in history.
Obviously, those fantasy players that made the U-96 their Tri-Cities selection are feeling robbed, just as the U-96 team must feel following the controversial penalty in the final heat that cost them 400 first place points and Dave Villwock his 61st race win.
The U-96 (1277) was outpointed by the U-1 (1449), and finished just ahead of the U-7 (1260) which completed yet another solid weekend as Deck2Deck’s pre-race predictions had indicated.
The fleet took a few lumps on the Columbia River, with Dr. Muscatel’s boat suffering the worst damage (large hole in the boat behind the right sponson); however, it appears all 12 boats should be ready for Seafair in two weeks.
With only two races remaining, it is now crunch time for Deck2Deck fantasy Players!

For me, there is only one pick for the Albert Lee Cup. This has to be the race that the five makes a statment. No matter how I look at it it’s the five.
