I think there was one race boat that burnt up in his shop during that fire but I dont know what it was. That inncident was not talked about very much as you can imagine why. Inspectech may now more then I do about that thought. He has got a boat sitting at Art's as we speak.

Yes, Audacity's parents bought INXS and are converting it for poker running. We should be seeing it at a TOPPS event soon, I hope.

Hey Velocity Mike,
Dragon Lady did not burn in the fire. The fire was caused by a transformer on the pole next to the building. There were witnesses who saw the explosion and the burning oil pour onto the roof. The Lilly's lost a lot of irreplaceable personal items as you can imagine with Art's career. Getting back to Dragon Lady the last time I spoke with Rich Tropolli he had the boat. I drove the boat one time with Art throttling in Pt. Pleasant. At 100 plus the boat's handling was great. With only a couple of minutes of seat time I felt I had complete control (well as much control as you can have when Art has the throttles) of the boat. Hope this helps.

I'm pretty sure that's the one. They have the INXS with the humps on the engine hatches and it still had World Champion stickers on it. One of my favorites too!

This boat is alive and well, my friend Tim owns it now and it's here in Southern Cali. Re-named "Never Satisfied"

That's me in the boat that day!!! We were out there in some large 4'-8' swells on the South side of Catalina. That boat was crushing them----the ballast tank in the front makes a tremendous difference!!
