Default Raceboat Trivia

Who can identify the following classic raceboat hulls and their length???

1) Inferno
2) Contagious
3) Streaker
4) Blonde
5) Harry O
6) Cocktails
7) Crazy Greek
8) Pure Insanity
9) Lil'smidgen
10) LaTortuga

I bet it will take less than an hour to find someone with all 10.

Gee Bob other than Inferno I haven't heard of most of these boats.

I'll take a stab at Crazy Greek being a Coyote hull and Blonde was a Cig.

The Crazy Greek is my uncle so i know that one for sure.

He ran a 27 Signature super custom and then the Cobra 10 meter.

Do you happen to have any pics of these boats?

Interesting topic!

James

1. Inferno is Ritchie Sutphens old personal boat. A 30 or 32 Sutphen with twin small blocks. Used to be owned by Greg Direnzo.

JGB,
I have many photos of your uncle's boat, both the 27 Signature and the 32 Cobra. I spoke with your uncle at the last Pt. Pleasant race-he is still a great guy and was surprised that we knew who he was.

Ron,
All of these boats ran in the Barneget Bay Races or the Benihana or Hennessy Grand Prixs, during the mid 1970's

Bodyshot, Marty
Inferno is the 30' Sutphen that you are purchasing from Greg. I'll be throttling Carrabba's in Daytona, will you be raving there?

Hint: there is a FULL menue of boats here.

Marty, a.k.a. Bodyshot,

Yup, I know Greg. Are you the guy he has been racing with from time to time these past 2 years?
