Roger Munn's Magnum - Jolly Roger.

When I was a kid watching it race on Barnegat Bay, I thought it was the coolest boat in the world.

Wasn't just one boat that I can think of. Around here in the late 80's - 91 or so they had several Formula SR-1s, a Chris Craft Stinger, a couple of Scarab Panthers, and a Baja 280. I loved them all and was hooked.

Saw and heard a red Cig while on vacation as a little kid. Been on the hunt for one ever since! Now, if the Real Estate market would just improve....

Saw the powerboats all my life, but what really did it for me was Flash Gordon and his poker runs. I was about 18 when he first bought that eliminator - remember it like yesterday. I didn't get to know him that well, but I sure do miss him and his boat . I am very happy to have run with him.

Early to mid 80's @ my parent's shore house, Barnegat Bay. I used to see a 29' Mirage (B-33) Kamikaze test running owned by a woman up the street. Through the years I got to know her and ran in her A-class boat 1991-94. (a different 29' Mirage A-33)
Prior to that I used to love watching the Bennihana in Pt. Pleasant but no paticular boat stands out.

I was in the 1st Barnegat Bay race with my Magnum Sport, it was dark blue named " Commotion ". I sold it to Rogers brother' in law Gary. I think Roger has the boat today.
