Here is another photo from the archives......Once again our man is there, second in from the right. Peter Rittmaster, center, was the driver for the race

In the early days, guys like Brownie not only built these race boats, they engineered them and then crewed them.

He was on a lot of winning boats......but, the records only show the name of the designated driver for the race....I bet it would be interesting to see how many wins he has in total as both driver and crew.

When I was APBA VP and Chairman of the Offshore Commission, the Commission voted to wish me a Happy Birthday. It passed 7 to 6 with one abstaining...... The guy in the first pic is my pal, Don Wilson, who was killed a month later in his Unlimited Hydro on Black Sunday, in Washington, DC, along with Ron Musson and another guy. In the second pic, Peter, who was Prez of Bertram, navigated. I drove. At the finish, after 255 miles around Long Island, we slowed down to conserve our HWHRSO Holman Moody powered 28' Donzi 'Li'l Broad Jumper'. Aronow in 'Big Bad Donzi', a 35' Donzi which became a Magnum cought up, and we ran with him for a few miles. Using hand signals, Don and I agreed that we would finish together, with me slightly in front. Right at the finish line, Peter noticed that Aronow had been slowly reducing RPM steadily. We were running nose to nose, and at the last instant, Don slammed the throttles and so did we. We out-dragged him and won by 9 feet!
