Airpackr:

Tell Mark R. I said he should aim the boat in the same direction as the pickle forks are pointed....... He used to get so confused....... also ask him to pass on my regards to his dad.

If he struggles with my identity tell him the "Other TV commentator ex Canadian Mercury Team"

T2x,Mark did comment about that particular boat being one hell of a handful to point in a straight line He said it cornered like it was on rails but until it hit 130 on the straight ,he just kinda hung on and went for the ride

Default Mark R.

AirPacker/T2X - Mark R. is a good friend of mine...In fact he has written the 'foreword' of my new book "Secrets of Tunnel Boat Design". I have pictures of Mark's old (blue) Molinari, that he picked up again this past spring. Call me if you want to have a look at some. I've got some good pics of one of Mark's blow-overs (Picton, Ontario) in my book.
