I think that boat has a long history. I am pretty sure it was a few different names including, American Express and Racer Powerboat sales. I think it was Jimmy Cazzani's boat.

Hi Tom, Wlcome aboard. It is good to see you here. These Shadow/Chris Cat threads seem to get a life of their own.

HeyGuys, sorry for the delay since my last post. Yes Shane ,I am referring to the same boat "wild Turkey" that boat (still owned by Frank Lach and driven by Bob Bocchino (currently my boss) When I was old enough I ran with them in the Cigarette. Sometime later, Frank bought the Chris Cat from Gino (INSTIGATOR) and we then campaigned the boat also as Wild Turkey, but in D class.
The original 35 mistress is still around, currently being rerigged. Some of the veterans out there might remember the White Knight a 28 magnum that Lach raced prior to the cigarette. Probably responsible for getting me addicted to this sport. I'll try to dig up some photos anjd scan them in.Also T2x thank you for the reply and I will contact you.

great stuff...

There is a board member(Robert, I think) who has White Knight and is currently restoring it. What a great project!

Default Rob Boccinio

Bob Boccinio's son Rob drove my 24 Skater in Key West at the worlds. He did a great job.

Cool The Shadow Cat

Since this is or was or whatever,is a Shadow thread I have to say my favorite Shadow Cat was C-41 Pipeline Express,owned and driven by Bob Schug and throttled by Rich Dancisin.We raced against each other.Bob was a great boat owner and would do anything he could for you,Rich was a crazy m*#~*%er that had a good time going on where ever he was at.The boat torn in half and put back together by George was a little heavy but was a front runner just the same.I believe Bob told me it was the first Shadow.Between them and Arnold D'Ambrosia's Rolling Thunder racing could'nt be any more fun.Miss those guys.

Boot, what is Fusco up to for this year? I am sure he want his King of the Hudson title back.

I gotta say that he turns that skater so hard at high speed (looks to be about 120) that I always watch in case I need to call for help. I can't see how it doesn't spin out or roll. His props must be spinning out. Anyone know for sure?

Does Skater rig them at the factory turning out?
