Rich, check this out;

Seems in class 3 that there are a lot of boats similar to your wing plus there is a lot of videos of races in the 70's you know when you were merely in your 50's.

Did you still have hair back then or did the Oklahoma National Guard have you cut it?

Very interesting,

GL

Hey GL......there is a little race around Ireland in June of this year. 700 plus miles in 5 days. Nice MTI water on the north side....waves only get to 30 feet and peak.

Great way to lose a little of that hair you are parading around....but the secret is ......you have to do it without a helmet...or canopy.

I especially like the video called "Crazy outboard racing in France" where they interviewed GLH about "putting a tiger in his tank".

Is that what those little blue pills are for???
Those outboards are more versatile than I originally thought!



Watched the Round Britain 2008 Video last night, it is put together great and a blast to watch 10 legs of roughly 150-225 miles 10 days in a row, it's an hour and a half long.

Quite the challenge and old school racing.

Wow...what a find this is! Nice job!

I spent hours last night watching races from '72-'82! Loved seeing/watching some of those cruiser classes as well.
