    Default Harm J Project and Rookie School

    When was the last time I saw 20 kids, in a classroom, studying to be boa racers???? Never!!!

    But today, there were at least 20, kids taking a written test on becoming a Boat Racer. It was too cool and for KT Doodle (It was SICK!!!)...

    I will post the J test from today, as soon as I figure out the answers to all the questions...

    Pictures are in no order...

    Thanks to Carl Lewis and Russ Britcher for driving us to the museum and keeping an eye on us....

    Thanks, Dave Williams for having such a place, a real dream come true...

    The rusty rudder is off of Miss Thriftway, when Bill Muncey was driving it, and when the rudder broke off, Miss Thriftway went through

    U-19 model, was Jimbo's four engine V-8 Unlimited.....

    Thumbs up A Grand Adventure

    Ron - Thanks to you and your crew for all the great pictures. You people on the west coats are so fortunate to have the museum in your back yard. I would be like a kid in a candy store in that place. I like what Darrell is doing with his "J" boat kits. I like the idea of a duck bill front end for that class. No pointed pickles to spear another child. My boys first "J" boat had the same front and ran well with that design. Wish more builders would get back to that style.

    Funny you mention the flat nose Tom. KT Doodle is for one reason or another obsessed with "Shovel Nose" boats. She saw pictures of dad's old Swift hanging in the boat barn and flipped over it.

    Ron:

    You've done it now. After 5 years of marraige to my wife, we have yet to take a honeymoon. We were planning to go to the Grand Hotel at Mackinac Island, Mi. this summer....Looks like she'll have to settle on Kent Washington instead...LOL Thanks for the incredible pictures. It's a way all can see what there is to see without going there. How can we find out about the J class room? It might be a great thing to send KT to after cheerleading camp....
