If we had Carte Blanche to bring whatever we wanted, and make this a Boat Show, I am sure that we could include a great variety of boats including the old outboard boats.
My first win in an offshore race, was out of Newport Rhode Island past the Lightship, on a course to Block Island, in a 14 foot cold molded outboard, photo below. It would be very dear to my heart to bring a boat like that to the show, but that is not the reason we have been invited and that is not what they expect to see.
This is a golden opportunity to educate a lot of people that are serious collectors of racing vehicles and gain a lot of media coverage for our sport.
If this is successful and we are invited back with an expanded presentation, there will be time to add on the very early boats, going all the way back to Gar Wood's boats.
