Anyone doubting the die-hard mentality of offshore racers will think otherwise after seeing this week's image of the week. We've all seen stacked trailers with personal watercraft and small boats, but when you see a pair of offshore race boats being towed on top of each other, now that's hard core.
The man behind the setup is Jim Simmons, owner of Simmons Marine in Akron, Ohio. A multi-time national and world champion in his 34-foot Phantom Simmons Racing, Simmons purchased the 30-foot Phantom Team Octane after the 2010 season and raced it off and on last year.
