UIM is the International Motorboat Union. They are the World Sanctionioning body for powerboat racing, encompassing Nations of every hemisphere:

From http://www.uimpowerboating.com

UNION INTERNATIONALE MOTONAUTIQUE

Though it bore little similarity to our modem sport, powerboat racing can reliably trace its origins as far back as 1902 when the British formed their Marine Motoring Association. By the following year, New Yorkīs Columbia Yacht Club had formulated a constitution for what ultimately became the American Power Boat Association and the French had formed their Congress of Automobile Boats. In 1903, the French ran a 62 mile circuit race on the Seine at Meulan and the 230 mile Paris to Trouville event while the following year saw a race across the English Channel and an attempt to promote a Trans-Atlantic marathon.

.........The hub of the Union, clearing house for all contacts with and from its member nations, a total now risen from twelve in 1927 to fifty-seven in 1997, and distribution centre for all relevant documentation, is its registered office within Monacoīs Stade Louis II permanent sporting complex in Font Vieille. This small suite of offices is staffed by the UIMīs permanent full-time Secretary General and two administrative assistants.

.........The ultimate authority in the sport is vested in the UIMīs General Assembly which is made up of one delegate from each sanctioned national authority and the General Assembly meets once annually in the spring of the year, to ratify the minutes of the previous yearīs Annual General Meeting and examine the reports of the General Secretary and Treasurer. In recent years and indicative of the wider ranging interests of the UIM, the location of the AGM has been alternated between Monte Carlo and Miami and Tokyo, a precedent now established.

..........The formation of a Technical Committee and the sanctioning of the American Power Boat Association to represent the nation with the biggest potential for competitive growth began a progressive programme of sporting, technical administration and safety development which continues still.

.........It is within the last decade that the UIM has grown most and part of the onus for this must fall on the proliferation of racing driven jointly by the Union and its various independent promoters. Most notably this has seen racing extend its horizons to encompass China, Cuba, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Greece, Hungary Jordan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Malta, Russia, South Africa, Thai-land and Yugoslavia and the growth is likely to continue.

hey curt,

SABER does not compete in sbi or apba, that's why you cannot find anything. this thread is about ego's , not about who's boats hold what records. this thread is about a putdown of two major boating companies by R.F.. do not take it as a personal slam against your boat, that's not what this thread is about i've never said anything bad about fountain boats, why do you feel the need to make a backdoor slam on mine?, would it make a difference if i owned a cig. or a powerplay, etc.?
