    Here is a few pictures..more is coming.
    Thank you Cathy.

    Text for the last picture:
    Jimbo, Carina and me in the old little western town Oatman, Arizona. If I remember right the year was 1999.
    I say, "Cathy, you should see all the pictures Lars is posting of Jimbo." She say, "I sent them to him....but they came back a time or two" Oh, I said...Jimbo just had cataract surgery on his left eye, but is doing very well, Cathy reports.

    When you call Jimbo, Cathy answers, "Jimbo's secretary."
    Thanks Lars Strom thanked for this post

    Same Clerici/Evinrude boat from 1974 with my own race #99. In Paris you always was forced to use the number giving to you for that race.

    Well.. The Stuart Boat Show was pretty boring but we found something that made me happy and put a big smile on my face.

    Landford Landing.
    We maybe must live on this street one day. NE Evinrude Circle
    Beautiful place but too pricey for us..

    This is from the OE class European Championship race in Denmark 1981.
    I raced my #1 Burgess/AKAI/Evinrude CC and a really tough fight with Ulrich Rochel in his #20 Burgess/Konig boxer 6 cylinder. After a weekend racing the 4 heats
    and some technical issues for me Ulrich won and I came in second.
    Micheal Werner in his Molinari/Merc was third.
    John Hill in his #52 Burgess/Johnson was fourth but got disqualified.
    Sorry for Danish only but picture and result is easy to understand.
    The second picture is my boat in that race.
    Thanks to Jorgen Jorgenson.

    This is an interesting picture from Aurozo, Italy 1976.
    Roger Jenkins in his #95 OE class Burgess/Archimedes/Konig. Alf Bullen in the #6 ON class Hodges/Evinrude CCC 2 liter V6. Not sure if it is a cross-flow or looper.
