Just watching Dust to Glory about Baja 1000 racing and have seen On any Sunday when it first came out
Wish this family would do a boat racing documentary

I'll pass along your expressed interest in a boat racing or poker run documentary idea. They will both be @ my house on the 14th for my parent's 40th wedding anniversary. Along with some other noted dignitarys from the 60's surfing era, the house will be full and rockin'!

Pool Whore..please if you would pass along my my thanks to them. as a dirt racer since 87 and a baja 1000 winner.. dust to glory was not only entertaining but by far exceeded any and all epectations or concepts of how that race could be covered.
If anyone hasnt seen/rented that movie..its a deffinet must see.

From On Any Sunday which capture the competetive spirit of all phase of motorcycle racing to just seeing Dust to Glory they have again shown they are the best
The signal to pass at 100 miles an hour is to nudge (ram) the guy in fromt of you if he does not hear you horn is amazing.

The range of boat racing from th epwoer of blown hydros to offshore to Unlimited hydros would be roight up there ally.

They must have accolades wherever they go but give them a few more from me I Ilived in your neck of the woods that would be one party I would try and crash

Wow, how about an "Endless Summer" theme to Offshore powerboating. They could take a couple boats and travel the globe to all kinds of cool destinations......"Endless Summer Two" had both a long-boarder and a short-boarder so....maybe the new Offshore theme would take along a Cat and a V-bottom....mmmm...maybe I should go along!!!!

World wide offshore racing film has already been done....Run Sunward it is called.

There is a free preview of the film on the HORBA site.

www.historicraceboats.com

Click on the Diamond Anchor Member info and then click on the free preview of Run Sunward.
A film crew followed the offshore race circuit from the Bahamas to Europe and both coasts of America. Don Aronow won one of his world championships that year. Some really great vintage boat racing shots in a professionally made movie, enjoy.

The unspoken rule of thumb in the desert is to honk the horn twice, Tap there rear end twice (your nudge) then if they dont get out of the way, and had an opertunity, you push em outta the way.
