Harry Wellman throttled for Bob Erickson.....who was VERY green at that time......... Something he never fully changed. Actually Bob started out navigating the boat.........

The engine concept in the boat was a mistake.....destroked big blocks. Wellman believed that big blocks were the ticket.....they were'nt...... But, he finally found a hull (Tim Ciasulli's Chris Cat) in 1985....for his ideas. The wider sponsons on the Chris did the trick.

IMHO...Bob Erickson's later success was ALL about Hurley...and Skater.
