Thumbs up Detroit Gold Cup + Steve David

For those interested, I have posted several photo albums of the races-faces-places that took place during last weekends Unlimited Hydroplanes Gold Cup which also included Vintage Hydros and NJ Skiffs.

Please go to the link :

The following link will also take you to an artcle about Steve David and his "not too eventful" weekend..

I also heard that there may be some OFFSHORE competition at next years Gold Cup anniversity...


Here is Mark Evans doing a 360...Mark suffered leg and back injuries...(Thanks to Thayer Cueter for this photo)

That's my old man's boat on main dock at DYC... it's always a good time to watch the races from the club and get smashed!!! I haven't been in a few years but I used to love to go.

Good to see you at the Gold Cup event. Wished we'd have won, yet something real memorable about Mitch and the Piston Boat winning this year. Quite a cool outcome!!!
Jolley good to see you and thanks for supporting the event.
Payton, how you doing? Our boat is progressing at each event. She's still 15 years old, but had extensive rebuild in the offseason. she'll have even more this winter, including sponsons and all aero surfaces in hopes of shedding 350 pounds and decreasing parasitic drag.
Kaama, I don't recall a Tom Costello, but that's more a function of my feeble mind...........

Look forward to seeing you guys at the San Diego race in Sept. or an Unlimited event next season. Whenever you can make it, let me know and I'll have pit passes waiting for you.
