Default The "Wing" has landed

Reports from Professional Marine Racing indicate that our (Darren's) Switzer Wing arrived safely from South Carolina this afternoon.......... Now the project can begin.

Our goal is to have her in pristine condition for the 2004 Clayton, N.Y. Antique Race Boat Regatta...... We'll post pictures as things progress...

Sharkey......... We need to talk.

Are you going to use a new style trailer or restore one like was used in the late sixties?

Magic:

Good question........ Probably a "retro" trailer. (The one it's on now has probably created most of the hull damage). We'll get something that looks appropriate for the time with updated wheels, axles, bearings and support rollers.

The power is TBD....... We're working on some interesting ideas.

Anybody seen any "Stackers" lately?
