      If the table is 4.5 x 3 feet, and the top and skirts
      amount to 6", then we are talking about a displacement
      of 420#. Not bad, all he needs is the matching Bimini

        A very interesting question! I'd never thought
      about that. I wonder if the <BR>
        "rake" of the lower unit would have
      an influence on whether it would just <BR>
        skid sideways until the inevitable bad outcome
      occurred or if it would nicely <BR>
        carve out a turn? I'd be willing to bet that
      they didn't try it out! (I would <BR>
        have been pretty cautious - up to a point, at
      least) It would sure be neat to <BR>
        learn the details of how the stunt was done,
      wouldn't it?<BR>
        p.s. Is there any prospect that you could send
      the photo to me via e-mail? <BR>
        I'd love to see how far my memory diverges from
