I agree is seemed smoother this year... With regards to the Viking getting hit- we got hit in our 53 Hatteras a few years back that did a decent amount of damage (nothing serious though). Guess who hit us... One of the Coast Guard Auxiliary boats that was patrolling!!! He got turned a little sideways, and to avoid hitting a boat on my port (CG boat was between us), he threw it into reverse and backed right into my port side. I looked back and he was out of control literally spinning as he trailed off behind us. Ridiculous...
This is one of the reasons we're reluctant to take the Sunseeker, even though we could stay out of the traffic.
Anyway, hope you had a good time even though you were working. There's worse work you could have been doing.
