Default GLOPRA Pictures

Let's see some GLOPRA and Silver Cup Pictures. For those of you that dont know what GLOPRA stands for ( Great Lakes Offshore Powerboat Racing Association.) We have all heard the saying incorperated with this club. "Boy those where the days"

Default 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.
