Default Into Old School Stuff?

How about Ben Kramer's last race boat? 1988 and in original mint condition. Nice Pace Boat for the Point Pleasant race. That's HORBA Pres Charlie McCarthy playing with the drives and tabs.



Lots more photos at http://www.freezeframevideo.net/

Talk about losing sight of the horizon!! When this triple engine 47 footer comes on plane, you can't see chit for 20 seconds or more. But once it gets on top, look out......! Awesome ride.

That was wild. First lesson in racing, don't pass the pace boat. Second rule of racing, don't hose down the OFFICIAL!!!!

He passed us, then slammed the door on turn three and we had to go through his roostertail, almost hitting Geico on the other side. Damn I felt like we were racing four wide through the turn.

I would have given him a penility if he didn't break.

Sorry to hear about your prop "issues"....

He said he's gotten a few dozen offers to buy that boat. It's not for sale.

He started to build a new McManus Apache when he found out that this one was available. Sweet ride. It doesn't get any better than that. Bobby Idoni's sweat was still on my seat!!!
