Big Seas DVD's

1. The Legend of Apache
Includes exclusive Video Highlights of all of Apache's greatest racing exploits, including the "Magic Throttle arm of Bob Saccenti". All video footage is by NNRT , The video team that taught the others how it's done. Racing action from 1981 through 1992 showing all the great Apache exploits from the very first Squadron XII Apache of Jerry Kilpatrick, through Ben Kramer's various "Warpaths" and ending with the timeless, custom "Apache Heritage". See exclusive interviews with Ben Kramer, Bob Saccenti, Sal Magluta, Kilpatrick, Bob Gallo, Lorne Leibel, Bob Idoni, David Street, Mark McManus and others who made the "Legend" come to life.

2. Cats Conquer Offshore

Exclusive NNRT footage from 1978 through 1983 showing the revolution that swept Offshore racing worldwide and led the top teams from single hulls to multis. Footage from the Open, Super and Production classes showing the teams and designers that led the charge. See racing footage and interviews with Popeyes, George Morales, Bill Sirois, Rocky Aoki, Bob Magoon, Preston Henn and many others. This DVD covers the entire story from the early, fragile cats to the unstoppable four engine Super boats that changed the face of Offshore racing forever.

3. 1984 Key WEst World Championships/1992 Cocoa Beach

This two race package is a sampler of vintage NNRT action videos. Covering two of the greatest events of the "glory days of offshore", these races give the viewer a clear picture of the excitement, fleet size, and racing action that represented the most successful days in racing history. These videos take you back to true competition and the drama of big fleets of closely matched racing at its best.

4. Cougar-The British Invasion

Exclusive NNRT footage spanning the years from 1978-1992 when Cougar was the most successful marque in worldwide offshore racing. See the development of these wonderful English hulls from the stables of James Beard and Clive Curtis. watch the hulls evolve from the early wooden versions to Aluminum, fibreglass and composite variants. Meet the great teams that drove these beautiful racing thoroughbreds to vistory: Seahawk (Sal Magluta and the Falcon brothers, Bob Kaiser, Michel Meynard, Paul Clauser, Joe Rodriguez, Elliot Sutton, Al Copeland, George Morales, and Of course multi time World Champion Superstar, Steve Curtis, the son of Cougar's founder.

5. Linder Luhrs- The Partnership that changed the game

10 years of action packed NNRT video tracing the exploits of two lifelong racing partners, George Linder and "T2x", who represented the best of US design and ingenuity while helping to pave the way for America's later dominance in Cat design. Starting with the early days of Linder's iconic Challenger 21 hull, the DVD covers the startling arrival of the Shadow cat on the world racing scene and its role as the first multihull to outperform vees in both rough seas and calm. See racing legend Willie Diaz turn the entire racing world on its ear with the small block powered "EL Boss". Follow the years of championships won by "Black Duck", the most successful hull in offshore history. Watch "Luv-it" tear through the modified fleet. watch The Shadows evolve into the Chris Cats which dominated racing as no other hull had before. See the legendary Jesse James hulls as Linder and Luhrs developed the revolutionary Conquest hulls (in collaboration with Master boat builder , Ken Adams) marrying Wood and Fibreglass composite techniques unlike any construction technique that came before. You'll be amazed by the outboard tunnel boat motors that propelled the Conquest, "Rolling Thunder", past the fastest inboards of the time. Finally, watch footage of the 48 foot four engined Jesse James, built by the Lavin Family as a tribute to Mark, which became the basis for all of todays Lavin Foundation Safety standards.


NNRT footage was very different from the competition. It was not taken "with a stopwatch" and covers the racing rather than a parade of boats. It was the most sought after racing footage of the time and appeared on all of the major Telecasts of the day. It was announced by Rich Luhrs (me) on a "live to tape" basis from the helicopter and our new collections have been overdubbed and updated to offer historical perspective. All of the collection DVD's were edited by Darren Luhrs from Phil Lewis' wonderful original NNRT footage.

These DVD's make great stocking stuffers for the performance boater who has everything. We believe they are a great value and have lasting significance.

Great Job Darren and Richie - Loved the new over narration - interesting facts -

My, the footage seems familiar - who took it ? Seeing some of the people from years ago was wonderful again -

Best of Luck with the newly editied films - I know what kind of work was involved, having done the orriginals usually in a day or two - its a lot of work and well done -

I am sure many here will enjoy the way they have been editied - If you want the perfect Christmas gift for a Powerboat racer or fan, then these are the ones to get -
