Default Classic...

Not offshore, but still one mean ride.

On Monday I had the opportunity to go out in a gold cup race boat named Impshi. Impshi was built in 1924-1929 and is now powered by an Innovation Marine 600. 80+ speeds...and yes, it has 5 steps and turns on a dime.

I would like to thank Mr. Mark Mason for the ride. Enjoy the pictures, though they do not do the boat any justice.

Some history of the boat according to Mark:

"Her name is Egyptian and it means Go!! Go!!! Go!!! It's a slang word which is often yelled at taxi drivers. Horace Dodge named it in 1925.. Rumor has it that the Dodge family cruised the Mediteranian on their 258 foot yacht the DELPHINE and came home with this name."

He was at Clayton and was thinking about doing the Lake George run but wasnt sure if he would be welcome. I assured him that the boat would be a huge hit.

Here is a pic of its sistership, THE HORNET. She is stained a dark ebony and varnished rather than painted as IMPSHI. It is currently without power and is for sale.
