Significant editorial correction caused by a stupid editing mistake: Mr. Potter's column will run bi-weekly rather than weekly.

However, the first one will run next Monday.

All apologies for the confusion.

A great question and one I should have answered a long time ago. Ron Potter got completely swamped in the spring and that continued right on into the summer. So rather than rush and push, we decided to back off our original goal and let him catch his breath (so to speak). The most recent Potter-related article is a short piece on what began as his rebuilds of well-used Mercury Racing 700s for a customer in New Jersey and morphed into a complete engine, transmission, exhaust system and rigging refreshment project. Here's the direct link, http://speedonthewater.com/boat-rest...NhdXRhJ3MiXQ==. The moral of that one, I reckon, is that once you start you go all the way.

Prior to that, we ran a story about a 20-foot Cigarette Potter and company restored to better-than-new condition as a wedding present. A short version of that story appeared on the website (http://speedonthewater.com/boat-rest...t=WyJzdWdhciJd) but a longer one (with better photographs) ran in the last Speed On The Water digital magazine. Here is the direct link for that one, http://speedonthewater.com/in-the-ne...issue/download.

A long-winded answer to a simple question, I know, but there it is. Potter On Performance will be back online, in regular fashion, when the author catches up with the work that pays the bills. Look for regular installments to begin again this fall.
