    How would the judges know if anyone cheated?

    They give lie detector tests at the end. If you or your crew fail the test, your disqualified.

    Last year or the year before, someone "accidentally forgot" to show up for the lie detector test. He was on the winning boat. To this day, I don't think it's resolved. I'll try to find some info online.

    He "forgot" to show for $500,000? Sounds about right.

    I've been loving the live web cam! It's so much fun to watch and see the leaders change. And OMG! That HUGE blue marlin! 1010 lbs! I can't even imagine a fish that big.

    It looks like everyone there is having a great time.



    Can someone tell me what kind of dolphin they are catching?

    It's really a great local story of a local win. Seems he was involved in the story I remember hearing years back;

    http://www.mdcoastdispatch.com/article.php?cid=30&id=9319





    .................<snip snip>



    During the 2005 Open, the 28-foot center console was chugging in from well offshore in steadily building seas when the vessel plowed into the back of a swell and the bow did not roll over like it normally would. Instead, the bow of the boat stuck in the back of the wave and quickly filled with water. The engines killed and the boat rolled to starboard before turning over completely, trapping Roberts underneath.



    “The boat rolled on top of me, but I was able to push myself off and out from under it,” he said at the time. “The next thing I knew, we were just bobbing in the water without any life preservers. I remember thinking this is going to be a long night.”




    A Good Samaritan came by about an hour later and pulled the five chilly and tired crewmembers onto the vessel to safety. One crewmember was in the early stages of shock and another had suffered a laceration, but they each survived the ordeal.

    I don't know if I would go back out after something like that.
