I have a love-hate relationship with Labor Day weekends. I love having three days off, especially when it’s warm. But I hate that this weekend signals then end of the high-performance boating season, at least in most parts of the country.
In any given go-fast boat season, there is the good, the bad and the ugly, although the latter are often one in the same. With an event happening every weekend, plus what goes down mid-week, plus all the industry stuff—new model-releases and such—it’s impossible to be everywhere at once or even hear about all of it. So don’t be offended if your particular high or low got left off my very short list. I’m sure it was really good or really bad. I trust your judgment. I just missed it.
With that in mind, I offer my highly subjective top-three highs and top-two lows (“top-two lows,” feels strange to write that).
