I thought that some of you guys would be interested in this photo from the 60s. It shows a boat that was built in Sweden for a speed record attempt. As per the decal on the side of the boat, a Crescent engine was used (I'm guessing the C Alky) with the driver being Carl-Eric (Kalle) Zander. At the time I think Kalle was a member of the Crescent Factory Team

It would be interesting to hear if you guys know any more information about this and other speed record (attempts) that were made using the Crescent engine

Except for a story in one of the US magazines about the first records set by Zander, you have found all that I have come across in many years of searching. There may be more in non English magazines, but these are not available to me in the US.
