Although the team’s Superboat Unlimited world championship in Key West, Fla., in November marked the triumphant culmination of an exhausting couple of years for the Miss GEICO Offshore Racing Team, team manager Gary Stray didn’t get much time to bask in the limelight.

For Stray that beginning came in many forms during the off-season, including removing everything mechanical out of Miss GEICO so it could receive a new paint job in time for the Miami International Boat Show (read the story), preparing a boat to race in Trinidad and Tobago, and finalizing structural and composite plans for the team’s Stray-designed 47-foot catamaran, which he expects to be complete in the next 12 months.
