And when he walks everybody laughs...and when he tires to run even more... cause the Tupeé will fall off.

Why canīt the man just carry his age with distinction ?
Thereīs others who could. Vincenzo Balestrieri for example, Fabio Buzzi even Don Aronow who he tries to be a minime of...

A few Hints...
The Beak was already the norm to stretch a smaller boat to be eligible in the 60īs.
Steps were used in 1930īs and 40īs in Torpedo boats, I got one 800 yrd from me here at display even.
Fabio Buzzi I recall did help Reggie... and then there was this one guy who actually started the whole Company...a WELL KNOWN Racer himself and Reggie was just a helper.

like I Said .. I give credit where credits due.

MikeyFin, I don't know you, but I like you. I like a man that can back up his opinions with facts. Keep up the good work
