Glen Cove Powerboat Poker Run Results 2009
A quick recap of the 2009 GLEN COVE POWERBOAT POKER RUN Event and Awards Party...
Inducted into the NPBA HALL OF FAME was George Linder, "The" famous boat designer and builder of Shadow, Chris Cats, and Conquest; just to name a few of his accomplishments that were used by the Lavin's "Jesse James Racing Team" and D'Elia's "Special Edition Racing Team". George started racing at NPBA's Gateway Powerboat Regatta in the late 70's...against me in Class A. CONGRATULATIONS George!
Also inducted into the prestigious NPBA HALL OF FAME was Stu Hayim, "RECOVERY", who also started his racing career at the Gateway Powerboat Regatta in Greenwich Conn, but it was in August of 1985. He went on to win every offshore WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE and still holds the record for circumnavigating Long Island in just 3 hours and 7 minutes in a 32 Skater powered by twin 650 hp Eickert engines. His sons were present to receive the award and brought along a Maserati and a Ferrari "California" to promote their Ferrari of Long Island and Ferrari of Fort Lauderdale dealerships. A CLASS ACT! They were also the Major Sponsor of this event...THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS Stu!
