Great pic of Howard. Not only one of the nicest rigs ever............one of the nicest guys, too. Pitted next to him at DePue in 1969 and enjoyed every minute...................

Yep Fred. You can see where he was skipping or clipping the water earlier, then started skidding. He's at the front of the skid and if you look closely you can see the vague outline of the rest of him.

Does it look like the R-60 boat has a turn fin on the Right Sponson?

Attached is a newer Howard Anderson 700/1100 CC Hydro. This was a new concept by Karelson at the time.

Also an old Sammish Slough race brochure.

This is the original EZ Loader crew members. The only person missing is my brother in law - Drew Thompson who also races c runabout or anything else runabout he could find to race.

Steve, I saw the "Race Van" about two years ago in Shoreline. I bet its still there... (About 160th and Aurora about two blocks to the west) It wasn't looking too good... I will try to find the picture I took of it.

Not very often did Howard race in C service, but here's one of him at Kitsap Lake many years ago.

Howard in the boat, along with Dean Hughes and Bob Rhoades.
