Some serious muscle in there. The Scarab in pic 3 must have been brand new at the time. Some awsome boats.

I was on those runs back in the early 90's with my buddys 302 formlua, those where great runs. Smoking Joe is an awsome ride.

Looks like 93? The Fountian in #8 is still here in Holland - was same owner as the Black 38 Scarab in bkgd named MINE. Have the almost 1hr video of 94 with Fred Kiekhaefers "On Duty" 42 Commanche, Bam, Warhawk, etc.. if anyone has copy capabilities or can do video clips for putfile send a pm. Caution - you cannot watch video with sound - the music is nasty stuff. Lot of dated paint but its winter..... Where did Kenny Gordon end up after Thunder Marine? Last heard wanted to start his own boat co. ? Smokin Joe was always entertainment..

Smokeing Joe is for sale at Lake Cumberland Marine, Fred K's boat Off Duty is in florida, I was at a christmas party last night with a bunch of guys that I did those runs with lots of good memories. Lots of sweet hardware would come up for those runs. One of my buddys just restored the 38 TG LOCK and LOAD that used to come up for those runs.
