    Default Part 23 - Mark Rotharmel, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

    Thanks again to Ted Abel for recommending our next Canadian boat racer. My phone call with Mark tonight reaffirms my earlier observation about wishing there was more time at the races to better know other racers. However, when we are at races we really work harder than at our “day” jobs and socializing outside our immediate group generally does not take place.

    Mark’s racing career was entirely in the OPC division at speeds reaching 150 mph.

    In 1991 Mark was inducted in the CBF (Canadian Boating Federation) Hall of Fame.

    “Glory Days”,(written by Mark) was re-published by Classicboat Magazine in 2013. At the time, the editor interviewed me about my complete racing history, which immediately follows the “Glory Days” portion on the first page of this attachment. (Note the break point for that interview comes immediately after the sentence, .."and yes, it brings forth my inner child”..
