Default Movies about boat racing....

Looking for xmas presents and would like to find any movies on boat racing... I know about "Miss Madision" and have already ordered that one.

Also what other books besides "Speed Kills", "Thunderboat Road"?

Thanks for the help and I am sure others wouldnt mind this info as well.

There is always the classic Elvis Presley movie "Clambake". Elvis plays a poor boat racer (although a millionaire) the girlfriend doesn't know this, just to see if she really loves him. This movie is a bit corny but has some great classic film of inboard SK boats. Alot of the race scenes were filmed at the old Miami stadium.

Darn you Bob - you stole my thought! Clambake was awesome. And wasn't that Bill Bixby playing the part of Reggie Fountain in the Scarlett Lady? No wait, Bill Bixby's neck couldn't hold all of those gold chains, even though he later played the Hulk! LOL (Easy Fountain guys, I'm kidding!)
