Hey Sean What's up??

The drive bit the dust, or should I say concrete. I hit some concrete last summer in East Chicago harbor. The insurance company helped replace both drives and transome assemblies. That was nice of them.

I know they started life as "Superhero Powerboats" and safe to say that they had to stop almost as soon as they started. A good friend of mine in Hawaii used to run one for hire. I had a great shot of the boat running straight up a huge (hawaii huge) wave. Very strong boats with a great history. No expence spared when they where built.

The boat does look good!!! Send me the graphic I'll make you shirts on the house, that boat brings tears to my eyes!!!

For a little history on Super Hero, it started in early 1989 with a little twin engine outboard race boat out in CA and Kitami wanted to go bigger. The Buzzi 38 EBEL was purchased but possesion could not be granted until after the World's in 1989. The 38 carried the name Super Hero on her in in small print at the 1989 worlds at Trump Castle and then was renamed "SH" and re-numbered as a Pro Stock boat for the Key West race that year. After that in 1991 the 38' became #38 Super Hero and raced in both OPT and APBA.

Everything was fine until we recieved a letter from Marvel comics about the name "Super Hero". We could of fought it and probably would have won but trademark cases drag on for years and years. The fear was if by some slight chance we were to loose the case then however many years worth of marketing Super Hero would be lost along with damages to Marvel.

The decision was made to just change the name now before too much water flowed under the bridge and not take the case to court.

The Super Hero 34 came from the Midnight Express 32 and the SH 40 came from the Midnight 37.

Little known fact is we also purchased the lone 45' Apache strictly to pop a mold from her as well, but never got around to it before crap hit the fan. The boat was sold again as if we never owned her.
