The story I got on Still Crazy was the rear fuel tank was not used and the fuel was in the foreword tanks (wing)

Roger, I was a kid when I met you growing up in Key West. I used to draw pictures of all the boats and give them to the owners. I was a die hard Jesse James fan and was around them all the time.

Hello Ryan, Well in my opinion you couldn't have picked a better boat to hang around. I see you are doing well. I am glad you have kept up with your artwork (a little more detailed than before I suppose) from what I can see you do some nice work. Good luck with the boat!!

I Think You Painted The Finish Line In A Barn In Chester ??
It Was Red, "american Spirit" BOB MOLINARI'S BOAT, Then You Painted It White.
He Was A Character, But Could Paint

In March/April 1988, I flew down with some friends to watch an APBA race in Panama City, Florida where TWO racers were killed in their 30' Cat named "LIBERTY". They were running a little late getting into town and were barely able to start the race on time....I think they even missed the pre-race meeting and were a few minutes late on the start of the race. I remember the water being a little rough that day for a 30' boat...especially a cat! During the race I also remember seeing their boat a couple times coming down the stretch---FAST...along the beach trying to make up for lost time and catch the leaders. I don't remember their names, but everyone was caught off guard with the bad news.

Spirit of Miss Liberty, flipped and trapped the crew in the boat. It was a new canopied boat, one of the first. They drowned in the boat.

Hello again Ryan,
I was just looking at your schedule for the upcomming season and I was hoping to see you somewhere in the northeast (prefferably NY). Unfortunatly it does not look like you will be in this area. If there is anything I can do to help you out with the team, please let me know, there have been many times over the past 20 years that I wished I never left the excitement.
