    Driver: Warren Spinnenweber and Rider: John Sherlock Sr.

    I was in the USMC and they borrowed my Switzer Shooting Star to run in the Albany to NYC Marathon. It was a tuff ride,,, a Switzer Star was not a good boat for this event. They finished and this was something to be proud of for that marathon.

    I remember my dad telling me he never thought they would make it across Havestraw Bay. When he got to NY he had to jump overboard because of all the gas on his butt from sitting on the gas tanks.

    And in them days, it would burn skin...I had a pump handle blow up on me about 1968, jumped into the Fox until mom got down there with some Solarcane, and the next day all the skin around my leggs and unit was peeling off....

    John,
    Back in the 70's we ran two man runabout at a MOD race at Morris, Illinois. Gary Anderson and Dan Kennedy were running with a "C" MOD against a bunch of us with 44's. The boat as you can well imagine was kind of small for the two of them and Gary ended up sitting on the fuel tank. As the heat wore on the bouncing around in the cockpit, sitting on top of the tank caused the cap to come loose.

    Now Gary is a great guy and suffered from what many of us have come to now as the hangers. The gas found its way to those hangers and poor Gary could not hit the water fast enough and suffered the rest of the weekend because of it. OOOIIIIIEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
