I recall The Collection became Seahawk 1, and later Team Seahawk.
Sprinter is Correct. Was Blue and had Arneson Drives, Errol had the Transom changed to 13* and put speedmasters on it. (On boxes Obviously)

No Different boat, Goodwrench was first Budweiser but was a 35 ft and was owned by Jeff Sofer and Ugo Colombo it originally had merc number 5s and did not have a center canopy. Goodwrech went to california and became network express sat for a number of years before it was sold for scrap.

I can tell you there wasn't time for socializing.I was a welder-mechanic-fabricator for Alen Brown and most of the time you were working your but off out in the back of Cougars shop on the canal. The 58 was top priority and way behind when I started in 81'.I met alot of folks but for the most part it was so they could tell me what they needed built and when they needed it.Like alot of places it takes a while to earn anyones respect.Brownie and Ridgeway made me lead man on the 58 4 months after I started.They brought in Nick Miller to rig it and put those 16v92's in it. We became good friends.I helped to design the parts he needed fabricated and welded them up.Its the biggest cat they had ever built.Nick and I also rigged the Ross Perot boat 'Rolling Thunder' as well as many other projects.
All of the pictures I have from that time are film/prints I will scan some good ones and get them up
Hey Nick and Brownie and anyone else from the good ole days.Give me a shout
