13 juillet, from sailing Anarchy: "After having the aft crossbeam crack in the 2012 Bayview Mac Race, Manitou went through a complete refit and extensive rebuild. Now named Lucky Strike, the 50' Newick designed trimaran it’s back and better than ever. New rigging, complete new crossbeam and deck area, rebuilt cockpit, a new self tacking jib, and the entire deck area it’s now clean and simple. Her working area is user friendly, and the whole boat is stiffer than she ever was. Freshly painted and the new press-and-stick non skid makes this cushy rocketship the prom queen of the multihull fleet as well as the Chi Mac fleet. Fred Ball is the owner has brought together most of the crew from Nice Pair again due the third straight year. On board is Jim Anderson, Kris Landman, father/son team of Earl and Hunter Lyden, and Bruce Geffen. Looks to be an awesomely slow race this year, even by multihull standards. Should be agonizing on a big yellow dump truck filled with lead! Kiwis Andrew and Ken from Harbor Springs did the amazing rebuild of the boat. Without their mastery and way over the top perfectionism, this would not have come to fruition so well. These two are true craftsmen boat builders that are in a league of their own."
