    That picture of Fred was taken at DePue in 1972. So you are correct on the year.

    Wayne, it's my grandfather's runabout. My wager is it is Loren Kaus. Jim did not drive for us.

    Hi, Wayne; the photo to which Ms. Cadle refers (Page 13) of Lee Sutter and another 350 runabout running together is probably a rarity in showing the engine Sutter was running.. Though you might not see it at a glance, what jumped out at me was that "Suds" (Charles "Honker" Walters had his own nicknames for everybody) was running one of the last of the Seattle-style Anzanis developed by Jim Hallum and Ron Anderson, and that it had bounce-pipes, the local term in those days for expansion chambers. Up to that point they had kept the poor old Anzanis competitive with open megaphones, lots of carburetion, and a heavy dose of nitro. Once they got the bounce-pipes sorted out, they didn't use nitro again. Those curving ram's-horn pipes coming out of the top and bottom of the Anzani block made for a unique sight, besides being a lot of cutting/fitting/welding.

    With the cast iron Anzani block, and all the carbs and pipes and mechanisms, that had to be a top-heavy set-up, but if you wanted a driver who could set up and prop and work with the crankiest of boat/motor combinations, Lee Sutter was The Man.

    Default Alan Ishii: 80 Years of Family Friendship

    I will be attending Phil Nichols Memorial this coming Wednesday, 1/11/2017. I'm hoping my brother, Alan, will be there.

    Wayne, this autograph section gets better every time I look at it. Thanks for posting it.

    Default Another Great Picture of Alan Ishii and Ray Rodda

I guess with all the hype I should have come prepared, but I didn't expect Tommy Posey from that same area to show up either. Nor Jim Slack from Lufkin.

    Then when Joe Flow had Jim and Sean McKean, Denny Henderson, Jim's pit man Billy, and the ever elusive Dick Frye show up at Corsicana to test the "Hot Foot", I wasn't expecting to see Al there. He is a quiet reserved type of guy, but steadfast to the end. At DePue, I was finally able to get his autograph on a photo I took of him in his hydro at Firebird Lake near Phoenix in 1976. Imagine having to travel all the way to DePue to get the autograph. Well...anyway I finally got it, and here it is. Thanks Al.
    I'm not sure what year, but seems this maybe up in Michigan!

    The picture of Alan Ishii and Ray Rodda Was taken at Winona Minnesota. It was the Grain Belt Pro Nationals in 1975. I took a lot of pictures that year because I hadn't recovered from my crash on Memorial Day yet. Tim Butts drove our 250 and 350 hydros and Charlie Bailey ran 1 heat with our 500 hydro and set a record.

    computer guy finally figured a way to do it. All my old pictures are now too large. I have to shrink new ones and go about it differently. Don't know how much of a pain it will be, but I will try to learn once again a new way to get pictures on here. Have to make chili now.

    Can't believe that it's been that long since I posted here. Think I have several new photos I haven't posted yet. However, I did get some new ones today. Steve Wetherbee and I went to see his uncle Tommy at a nursing home in Alice, Texas. Steve was planning on bringing Tommy to my house to visit, look at my little boat racing museum and sign the photos, but he fell and messed up his his pelvis a week or two before he was to come over. Tommy had to go to a nursing home, or a rehab place to get through all his convalesence and since he has been doing well, Steve and I went to Alice today to visit and get the photos signed. We spent a very nice hour and a half visit outside under a wooden canopy. Tommy was doing very well and was very happy to see us. We will go back soon to visit again. Tomorrow or the next day I will post the pictures.
