    Since 1925, about 150 different racing outboards have been made.

    Ken:
    Where in heck did you find that!!!!! It appears to be Tommy Posey in Miami at the introduction. The sound is not of the rotary though. The still shots of the boat alone were made at a different time as they have the fuel caps. \
    Thanks for posting

    Wow, thanks so much Mr Finley, at least now I've SEEN one running.

    You are right, that audio most certainly is not that of a 4 rotor wankel. That's a sound you'll never forget once you've been in it's presence. Fortunately audio does exist... unfortunately it's in land-based form:

    Sorry, 100 blips of the throttle doesn't do anything for me ... I go with the long whine stretching it out on the straight

    Ok I don't want to hijack the best thread on the board but just to convert Mark75H to rotary power:

    I didn't say I didn't like rotaries ... I just don't care for the one clip. I like the other one with the car on the track
