    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.

    Default Boat 880

    Boat 880 was Walt [ Uncle Walty ] Crane from Antioch Ca. I had the pleasure of pitting for him . I have the race on 8mm film that has been converted to a dvd but dont know how to post it. I would be happy to mail the dvd to someone [ trustworthy] that can download the havasu part of the vidio and post it with a promise they will send the dvd back to me. Any takers out there email me at hydroc888@bak.rr.com .

    Talking The boat ramp pictures.

    Man I was scrollin along and all the sudden I thought I heard that V4 bust off. Real cool pics. I always thought those old boats looked so cool because the CRAZY drivers just sat on top of the thing with a steering wheel in their hand and nothing else to keep them in the boat. WILD
