Smokin Part I!

Smokin the Sound returned to Biloxi this weekend. It was canceled last year because of all the debris in the water from Hurricane Katrina. One of the boats, the Fountain, obtained speeds of 175mph! Smokin!!
The start of the race looked like something out of Apocalypse Now. Each boat had a helicopter.


At times, it looked like the boats were racing the helicopters instead of other boats.



They went by so fast, it was very difficult at times to get a good shot. The next two give an idea of the speed the boats were doing.




The Fountain was in the lead throughout the race.
