    Default Tinker's New Glaspar

    Man, I can't take Tinker anywhere anymore, becasue he's caught "BUYING FEVER".....I got "SELLING FEVER" right now.....Well, maybe...I did only buy an SST 120, an OMC 15 A, a Mod VP, a few engines.......maybe a new A Hydro....this week....

    Anyway, Apple Valley is fun...always, even when we blew Mickey's battery all to hell...

    I took a Record Prop, that was Stoker's, and asked Al if it was his...He said, "YES"...then I gave the prop to Mickey...We might want to run 36 sometimes...

    There is a picture of a transom pice that makes a D Runabout into a 36, the blurred picture is a cut out boat in the rafters...a "PROJECT" for the future....

    Tinker with shifters for Mark Nelson's Twin Ron Jones Drag Hydro...I think...Hugh Huser cecking out stuff...Mickey has rooms full of "Every ****"...if you need boat parts....I can find it...at Appla Valley Marine...They are closed Saturday, Sunday, Monday, maybe Tuesday and they seldom answer the phone.....but they got business....lots of it...

    The blue boat is for my J HYDRO PROJECT...I'm going to use the trailer to carry J Hydros. .....

    And my Yellow Tahiti....Nice boat, really..

    Tinker told me about this place and that he bought a Glasspar. Looks cool!
    My mom and dad had one (1969), but Tinkers boat looks much older.
    Yea, that shifter is going to be the throttle for the engines. Same as what Molly had in her boat, just have to clean it up and modify the handles some.
    Tell Tinker thanks for helping finding parts for me.

    Default La Palma Monaco 2002

    Well, Fred's Winnebago is still for sale, unless I buy it...Laurie and I bought Dave Bryan's, Outboard Natioanal Champion Dave, 2002 35 foot Monaco...Laurie is a "Driving Fool" but I didn't take any pictures of her at the wheel, as I was holding on too tight...

    We'll have this "PUPPY" at Parker April 12-13...2008.

    Default Samari Suzuki

    It really was with a heavy heart that I started helping Fred and Todd Bowden sell off their Bowden Development Champboat equipment....

    But when the SAMARI went up for sale....I had to have it....not just to haul around behind OUR new motorhome...This Samari is a 1989 and has always gone to Boat Races...as the new King in the King and I said, "I like Boat Races." I remember seeing Fred's late brother Larry drive this thing....I've always like it....Now Laurie and I own it....

    Old stickers will go, and NEW WWW.BOATRACINGFACTS.COM and WWW.HILLMARINE.COM will be on it...

    Fred and Todd may be out of Boat racing, their Samari will be there with me, Laurie, Chad, Corey, Broc, Lane, Steven, Pat, Diana, Tinker.........The Hill Racing Crew....

    Default OMG We Had A Great Trip

    Laurie and I hauled out for Needles a week ago, went to Prescott, then to Phoenix to see the Dodgers and D-Backs play baseball..Then went back to Parker for the races...April 12-13, 2008, a great weekend for racing.....

    Now that my brother has figured out this "NEW" Concept for propellers, we figure we'll place higher than fifth, next time....

    Anyway, I've been keeping an eye of Rod Zapf's HST Hydrostream, the NEW J HYDRO.......and OMG, those bottoms on Cracker Boxes..............I am so GLAD I don't own a Cracker Box right now....

    GN-7 looked good at Parker......I bet Rusher Air to win the first qualifier....almost everyone else in the Hill Racing area took The Body Snatcher..........But, after the first heat, I switched my bet to GN 711.....Cool thing about GN-7 winning..........I was OLD 888, a prop I made 31 years ago......Good run all.....

    The "PIPQUEAK" jeep we bought from Fred was close to perfect, we did have to push her back after Saturday's weigh in.........Seems Fred Bowden told me she gets 350 miles on a tank of gas......that maybe be true, if you are pulling it...

    This Tummy Gummer prop seems too big....

    Default Every Been to a Banjo Tournament?

    I don't know what it was really called but I called it a Boat Race without water...HOT, HOT, HOT and FUN...

    Laurie's sister Betsey play the banjo in the BIGINNER DIVISION... Boat racing needs more "BANJO TOURNAMENTS"...a place for competition but fun was the MAIN STREAM...

    www.boatracingfacts.com was at the tournament...

    Check out my Blue Water Resort and Casino 300 boat... Pat brought her down from Fresno....Might just paint her all ORANGE and call her ARCADIAN. I'm sure if Jimmy Hauenstein was here, he'd drive with me...Freddy has to go to a UIM meeting so he can't drive with me.

    Looking for sponsors, I'm maybe 5, 6...I'm a few thousand short...
