    Default Dan Pigott

    My father Dan Pigott raced stock an pro from 1948 to 1958 mostly in Southeastern Boating Asso. Deiter Konig said that SEBA was the toughest group he had ever run with. Dad had good sucess winning many races, championships an set some records. He was my engine builder an best friend during my racing years. He built many engines for OPC an Bass boat's around the country an some for people overseas.

    Smile Dan Piggot

    Hi Danny- I remember your Dad when John Slaughter and I visited him at your home about 60/61. Really didn't get together at the races. John ran SEBA and NOA when he was back in town. Being in the service (USAF) at the time, it all kept me in tune with racing.
    Still haven't found your postings of D.F. Jenkins on S&F.

    Default some neat pictures

    Hi Danny:

    If you have anymore, especially of any Ashburn runabout action, would love to see those.

    I notice the name "Funderbrink" or something similar in the news clippings. From the way race announcers (except Ray Rodda) used to butcher my name, I can imagine this guy must have felt the same way when he had a good day.

    David that is not me in the pic. I don't know who it is. I was reading a 1978 propeller mag. today an saw a region 4 write up about the Maryland Boat Racing Club fall meeting. They ran an indoor regatta an the winners were, John Augustine, David Weaver, Scott Clafferty, Noel Paul and Keith Mc Mullen. How did this work sounds like fun. They said this was the hightlight of the evening.
