Correct..it was probably the fastest Shadow in pure speed that we built at that time....but I doubt that they could have caught this guy....in an ocean race......

The truly amazing Willie Diaz, they didn't call him "El Boss" for nothing.

Hello Rich,

Willie Diaz and "El Boss" made a lot, if not most of the Open Class boats look slow in its day. I saw him race a few times over the years back then, and he was amazing and always on the mark.

Happy Thanksgiving to all
Thank you
Jim

Some time after King Sting he had Gone Again - which my other neighbor has now - upgrading to Fuel Injection and some other "minor" mods... LOL!!

Happy Turkey day!!!

what size was El boss and what power did it have, found out the awesomes of today are similar to the chris cats , and shadow cats, they must handle the rough water very well.
