    It is my father's boat.
    The boat is repairing now.

    Default Need Shorter Tracks...

    Take a page from Fred Miller's book...Shorten the course up to 35 seconds.

    But aren't blowovers less dangerous than boats running into/over/through each other?

    Default It Is Fred's and My Belief

    Fred figured it out, a long time ago, that tunnel boats blow over...By making the courses shorter, you don't run out of boat...and blow over...

    Yes, people run into each other in cornes, but the speeds aren't as fast and less damage...Our 45's run under 70 MPH on a 35 second course...and on big laps, like Bakerfield we'll see 82 MPH at the end of the shoots...

    When you run 15-20 boats together you'll have wrecks in the corners, but with longer courses, you'd have many more blow overs..

    As I recall, we once had a race at INDIO, were after two days of racing, every 45 there had blown over...(Indio is below sea level and the motors put out more power and the straightaways are LONG....).

    Look at Parker when they ran 45...Blake, (Two broken shoulders, never raced again), Rick Hoffman (Broken arm), Nathan Worthy, blew over twice testing...I think...

    Slower boats have less violent accidents...This Yamaha blow over reminded me of the days Jimmy Johnson and Rick Hoffman were going 90 in their Yamaha Mod C's...way too fast for the boat size....

    This boat is Molgaard Racing formula-4
    It is a boat of the category named "F-850" in Japan.
    Looks like UIM S-850.
    It is a category to 850cc. Yamaha 70CE is used.
    A lot of modified is permitted compared with S-850.

    In this race, the gear case of new shape was used.
    It seems that it is because the lift in the gear case was larger than the
    expectation.
    I think that the cause of flip is this.
    Moreover, it is a cause that there was no radio device.

    The accident is very sad.

    Thanks for the details, I was curious.

    I have another question. How many amateur racers are there in Japan? How many races do you have?
    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.
