That picture does have attitude.It was taken by Powerboat Magazine last year off of Hawks Cay Resort in the Florida Keys.

It was 4-6 footers and 20 MPH winds.Bob Teague is driving.

This is a 28 powered with a Single 500 EFI.It is located in Pennsylvania and owned by Guy Caswell.

This is a great close up picture of My Father and I at last years APBA national in Texas.

We were in our all black 28 F1 race boat.

It is just a little warm in the Summer months!!!

This has to be one of the coolest threads I have seen on here to date. Thanks for the great pics and history lesson Jo.

Maybe one day I'll be fortunate enough to own one of your great boats since they are definetly one of my favorites.

This is a picture of a 1995 28 footer powered by a single 525 SC Merc.The boat is called Taz No Mercy and located in Maryland.


This pic. was taken outside of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale during a taping of a high performance boating program that aired in Cable TV in 1995.It was 6-8 footers out in the gulfstream and I was heading straight into them doing 60-65 MPH.

I had a friend of mine that is a Model here in Miami with me for the photo shoot and it was her first time going out in a High performance boat.

She picked the wrong day to go out!!

I saw her feet in the air most of the time.

This picture was taken of BJ and I racing in F1 in the West Palm Beach APBA National in 1999.

There was a Hurricane approximately 50 miles away and was kicking up 10-12 foot swells.You would just surf them down.

We ended up taking a second in this race after leading most of the race.

This picture was taken in 1991 while we were located in 188 st. "Thunderboat row" working on a hard top 28 footer.
