I remember this boat at the factory. I think it was built for a European or mid east customer and was getting ready for shipping. The coat of arms of the owner was painted on behind the number.

Don made some joke about it belonging to "another one of the kings". He sold many boats at that time to various kings around the world.

Willy Myers supervised the building of a 35 that was sold to the Shah of Iran. Willy went with the boat when it was deliverd to Iran and the Shah gave him a beautiful gold Rolex watch engraved on the back with the Shah's name. This all happened before the Ayatollah took over.

Excellent agent! Congrats on the Championship. Also, I think that particular boat is still being raced overseas.

I bought an old Sutphen and spent a year bringing it back from the dead. Let me rephrase.....I just refurbed the engines, drives, and electrical system of an old Sutphen race boat. The hull is built like a brick **** house. No problems there!!!!!


Anyways... She was called ALL RISK and was raced in the early eighties. It was orange/red and white.

Please, please tell me that someone has some old race pics of her. If you do please POST them!!!!!!!

Here's a pic of her now......nevermind......can someone please explain to my dumb ass how to post a picture.

Thanks
