A new video about the efforts of offshore racing notable Stuart Hayim, who recently set a new Around Long Island powerboat record with throttleman John Tomlinson in a 42-foot Marine Technology, Inc., catamaran with twin Mercury Racing 1350 engines is online now.
The National Power Boat Association-produced video does more than capture Hayim and Tomlinson’s record-setting run. It chronicles Hayim’s cancer awareness and fundraising efforts through his Recovery offshore racing team for more than 10 years.
As for the 2-hour-and-11-minute record run, the nine-minute video presents never-been-before footage from inside and outside the cockpit. The total package is clean and compelling, and definitely worth a watch.
“We got real fortunate, thank you, with the weather, Mercury power, which from day one has always worked for us, a great boat and all the pieces came together,” Hayim says regarding the record-setting run near the end of the video. “A lot of it was hard work. A lot of it was just good fortune in the form of the weather.”
