    Default 341 Is A Schultz

    Looks like Ray Nydahl at the front of the trailer...Pretty sure this is the boat Dewey Berghauer stuffed in the 9 Hour....Looks like Havasu Springs where we tested...This would be the spring of 1967...

    Missed your post....The twin Johnsons were McCune's...This is the Berghauer's ride...Dewey stuffed cross my wake made by my DeSilva Wing limping back to the pits on one more!

    That is Rich and Bruce for sure....We stayed at Savard's Motel at Havasu Springs and tested up there before the enduro...In those days the road ended at Havasu Springs...There was no road to Havasu City from Parker, without going back through California...

    Default UJ, Sayres Pits, Seattle 1973

    At the 1973 "225" held in Seattle on the unlimited course. I was doing pretty well until, on one of those big turns, my fuel pickup was starved and I ran out of gas! This was probably the best boat I built, very forgiving and fast!

    We considered UJ to stand for "Used Junk", all I could afford.

    Rick Remley bought this white Champ Boat and turned it into a Formula 100 boat and raced for one season, Then I got to do quite a few tricks to it. It turned out to be a really fast boat.

    I was going to scan a few OPC pics from around 1973, but couldn't find them. Keep yours coming.

    ADD: Found these from Lake Charles 1979. Have had much scanner trouble. Can't get these sized right.

    Thanks to all who have posted on this thread!

    Rick Remley's Formula 100 used a CCC/RS tower and gearcase under his V4, which worked quite well.

    Keith Barco used the same setup on his V4. His boat was also very fast.
    I took these in Jensen Beach Florida (near Stuart) in '88 or '89 when I worked for OMC.

    Bobby Cullinan's boat and motor from the same race at the Jensen beach causeway.
    I never saw anyone cut the exhaust snout off of a clubfoot before but it must have worked pretty well....he won that day.

    Another Formula 100 V4 powered boat from Jensen Beach. I don't remember the name
    of the driver.

    I was surprised at the large number of V4s there on that day.
