Dean and Leanne Kriewaldt are aiming for the winner’s podium at next month’s Southern 80.
The Redesdale couple has been racing Money Muncher for three years, gaining a third place at Lake Charm recently.
Leanne said they had a track record of getting seconds and thirds.
‘‘It would be fantastic to win,’’ she said.
Dean was previously an observer for Axedale’s Tony Dempster on The Bandit.
‘‘I’ve said we’ve got to get our own boat,’’ Leanne said.
‘‘I came up with the name because it cost us an arm and a leg.’’
Dean and Leanne are boating fanatics and son Dale and nephew Jacob are the skiers in the team heading for Echuca on February 8 and 9.
Son-in-law Luke Fitzpatrick is the observer.
‘‘We’ve kept it in the family,’’ Leanne said.
‘‘Dean’s been skiing since he was a little boy and I’ve got in to boats through him.’’
She said they had a lot of support from the community.
‘‘This year we’ve had a few sponsors which really makes a difference,’’ Leanne said.
