Well I didn't get the B quite correct... But the 60" F was playing ball!




And Dwight busted out his 4-60 which was super cool!

Sure sounded sweet. I would loved to have been riding deck. I was smiling from ear to ear watching and listening to the sweetest sound this side of heaven.

Had an absolute blast. Experience of a lifetime!

Watched the video on one of the drag boat sites. Now you need to add an 1100r to your collection. Glad you enjoyed the ride it looked like you had a blast

Thanks. I'd rather have the 6 over the 1100r! Fat chance HAHA! We just have so many boats. I am thinking of modernizing this hull (shortening the transom and adding a turning fin). It is a "one off" Bezoats runabout. Nothing like JW's 1100, but would be adequate for the time being ;) I could also have a custom long tower made to accept all the loopers and quickie feet.

Fantastic videos. That was a perfect setting for the loopers. Down between mountains and cool sweet water, you got a perfect echo chamber to collect the sound. I loved that heat of 1100cc runabout. Took me back decades. Glad you got across the finish line when you did. Seeing those guys challenging on the inside and outside, my right shoulder was beginning to give out, and I didn't know how long you were going to last. But heck.....you're still young! Thanks for giving us old pharts some good footage to watch. Took me back to some good old days.

Here is JW and I working to get his father's B Quincy Looper fired up. It took us awhile. After junk in the lines, gummed up fuel pump, and just generally getting enough fuel into a thirsty old girl she fired. That gun sure did make things easier considering how stubborn she had been.
