Who else is coming?

That's great news Ron! Rocky was a MAJOR supporter of the sport...

I wish I could be there but prior plans can't be changed.

How about your Dad? Is he still coming? I promised him a spot on the pace boat.

36' CIGARETTE "Boss O' Nova III". Bill Wishnick won the World Championship in 1971 in this boat.

The person restoring it has taken alot of pics but is waiting untill it is done before posting any of them.
Here's that Searace picture:

Also one of Bob Magoon's 36' KAM (Kiekhaefer Aeromarine) Cigarette's is owned by Marc Berman at BAM Marine. Check out his website for more on his restoration...

And another...

Here's Rocky Aoki's Bertram past & present. I believe someone here on OSO owns it now. Anyone?


Also I met Marc Berman at BAM MARINE today - very nice guy!
I also had the chance to see BAM as it sits today in his shop - Great Boat! - lots of history. I was even telling Marc today that Bob Magoon was my eye Dr. when I was a kid... I bet he'd be glad to see her again someday. Anybody catch that piece on Magoon last year in Hot Boat?
