    I'll get the ball rolling

    My first race in the 80's in this boat at Cedar Point in C class. I got Rooky of the year in GLOPRA that year. Top speeds of 80plus MPH. I took this boat in on trade and built the 454's from top to bottom, glassed in the cabin windows, two new TRS outdrives , stripped out and painted the hull and away we went. I pulled it with a single axle ford tractor and a Holstar hydralic trailer. My fingers where bleeding from pushing the throttles against the dash trying to get more speed. One of the best years of my life.
