    Bill has broken the record Geno set so many years ago, he is at 1,422 in just 2 hours & 24 minutes. And he is still going, saying he isn't even tired! CRAZY!!

    Unreal. The guy is barely even slowing down too.

    711 in 60 minutes is 11.85 flips per min.
    1422 in 144 minutes is still 9.85 per min.!!

    Bill just hit the 4-hour mark, he is at 2,134 flips without falling or stopping the boat!! He is taking a short, 5 minute break right now. Not the kind of break I'd take.......he is just not flipping for a couple of minutes, takin a lap or two and just cruizing. He is not showing any signs of stopping just yet!!
    GO BILL GO!!!!

    No worries on the updates! I am getting updates from 4 different people...Mike Murphy & Chef Anton who are both in the tow-boat, and Kevin Thayer who is in the chase/camera boat, as well as Mickey Davis who is dockside. Everytime one of them updates me, I send out the info for all of you.

    The latest....at the 4.5 hour mark (which is how long it took Geno to complete 1,416 flips on his cast AC) Bill is at 2,349. He is still going.....

    So everyone is wondering, how far will he go? The people in the tow boat think he'll surpass the double mark (2,832)...and wonder if he'll make 4,000. They are communicationg with Bill via a dry-erase board. When they wrote "4,000?" on the board and showed it to him, he just smiled and threw another flip........
