    told me he saw his old Lavey and chased it down the public launch parking lot to no avail! He liked that four stringer one the best! And, preferred them to b-boats, so he said. Should I believe him Jim?

    Ever hear of a K boat named the 'Green Dragon'? I would like to restore my Eliminator to honor this Northwest Legend.

    The "Green Dragon" K-Boats....Eliminator/Sanger were just before my time.
    Try "Sharp Shooter" Jerry on this one.

    Most Lavey rigs were just before my time. Being from AZ..it was all about the B-Boats


    PS..great pics of Grichar

    I was told the Eliminator spider was a Ron Ehde design. My guess is they took a B boat bottom, ditched the rocker, made it a 4 straker and called it a day. Next time Billy get's one in the paint shop maybe i'll measure the bottom. I've never seen a non bubble deck spider but that doesn't mean a prototype or 1 off wasn't built...?

    The earlier Eliminator flats that I've seen have an entirely different shaped bottom and none were bubble decks.

    That's all I can add.

    Default Is it time for Safety Capsules to be Mandatory, on all high speed race boats?

    In light of the circumstantial evidence above (photo), regarding boat collisions, I am incline to support safety capsules. The walls of a safety capsule between an enclosed pilot, and another driver’s boat hull, seems to me to be an added protection. I would rather see a boat’s propeller chew-up a safety capsule, than the alternative.

    This is the aftermath of Ty Newton and Dave Bryant race boats colliding, at the San Diego Bay Fair 1999. The yellow-helmeted driver (in the attached photo) just ran over the top of the other race boat, turning the corner at the turn buoy.

    These are still shot images that I took from the video:
