    Default Magazine articles from the 30's 40's 50's

    I recently came upon a collection of Motor Boat, MotorBoating and Power Boat magazines. Every once in a while there is an interesting article on boating and racing. Thought it may be a source of interesting conversation. I'll start with this one from August of 1948.

    Default 102.256 record

    The year was 1931 and Gar Wood set a new speed record of 102.256 mph using 2 12 cylinder Packard motors with a total 2200 hp.

    Fast forward 88 years, the year is 2019 and if you saw the Go-Pro video from Zac LaRose's boat at this springs USTS race in Florida you saw a top speed bump 103mph, from a Rossi 2 cylinder 250cc alky motor on a Trombetta hydro.

    I dare say Zac's entire setup weighs less than 1 12 cylinder Packard motor did. Isn't technology great !!!!!
