There are many who have no idea who they were, so take a moment to read this and understand just what they did back then, so when you meet her, you will know.

The two boats with the number 3 on them were considered pretty slick race boats back then. They were made by Prowler and were very fast for the day.

The photo of the houseboat is a great story all by itself. Made by Thunderbird ....now Formula. It was a 40 footer and powered with twin Chrysler 325 HP engines. These two women entered it in the BAHAMAS 500 mile race. The actual distance that year was 512 miles. Out of 63 entrants, only 16 made it to the finish.

The girls did finish in a time of 35 hours and 24 minutes.
I would love to meet either of them. What a great story!

I have been looking for an original Prowler for years. Are there any left ? . . . .

The only Prowlers out there are fiberglass runabouts or whatever.

Final artwork for the participants only patch.

These patches will only be given to the crews on the boats that are racing.


The other patch, the one Brownie has, will be available to the general public as well as the racers.

beautiful, if that could be made into a sticker as well, I would like to have one for each side of the boat to leave on. i think it would be a cool badge of honor for the boat when running on poker runs and such...

We have a decal that is about 10 X 12 that is basically the same thing.

Once again these decals are to be given to the actual racers only.

They were designed to be left on, for those who want to keep them for poker runs or pulling into Shooters, looking cool.
