The boats were arriving at the Dry Pit area on trailers while we were there.

Boats were lined up where fresh water hoses were available to an after race wash down.

Because of the large turnout of spectators at the August power boat races in Orange Beach and overwhelming community support, these Americal Power Boat Association races were moved from Key West to Orange Beach this year.
