Default 013 Powerboat Calendar

If anyone is interested, I have produced a 2013 Powerboat Calendar featuring the competitors during the 2012 Cowes Torquay Cowes race.

January has an awesome shot of Apache racing past Portland.

The price is 15.00 ($24.00) and includes posting to the US.

She runs well with a couple of normally aspirated motors, will post some pictures when I work out how to do it.

Excellent Video! I remember that powerboat running the Atlantic Ocean off Jersey. Still a beast!

The "War Horse" crew are a real team. Tony the Owner/ Driver,may pays the bills but he works on the boat every weekend, Trevor on the sticks has both talent and understanding because he is also the engine builder and those are his babies, I think he may even use his own blood as the Lube oil they are that close to each other. And the deal is, He blows them he rebuilds them in his own time so he remains very focused.
Stuart the Navigator thinks that the boat is his second home or maybe even his first, as he too is there every weekend. That boat wants for nothing, the team are that dedicated.
