    I had one of those Blackbird boats barrol roll in front of me at Augusta back in the day. It was good for me because my trim wires on the wheel had come unplugged. Have you ever tried to plug wires together during a 15 boat heat of Mod-VP. It ain`t gonna happen!
    Fixed it at the restart dock.

    I allways thought that Blackbird deck looked cool.

    So no one has any pics of the old BLACKBIRD??? I heard it looked like the Stealth bomber. Maybe it wouldn't show up on film anyway???

    I remember talking to the guy that rolled his boat in front of me. He couldn`t understand why Al Stoker was upset with him for copying his boat hull. He felt like Al should have taken it as a compliment that he choose his boat to copy. Least that's what he told me anyway.

    When my brother saw a rag over a prop, he'd always say in a loud voice, "We're proud of our props, we like people looking at them."

    To Stoker's credit, they really built an amazing boat. Their 20 foot, SST Tunnel handled (still does) like a dream.

    A guy came to the shop looking to buy a Volvo Propeller for his 289 Ford Cobra on a 270 Volvo outdrive. I said, "Wow, that is so cool, a perfectly restored Donzi, Sweet 16." He said, "Actually, it is a 'splash' of a Sweet 16. But Don Aronow, sued them, and got the molds. They only built like five boats."

    Chip Wavro #33 races a Blackbird in Super Sport OPC. I can't seem to find any pictures of the boat but I know there are some on here somewhere. The boat runs very well for a green 150
