Beats me......

But I do stand corrected. Willie won World Championships at Key West in both the Shadow Cat and the Cigarette apparently. If Darren says it's so....than it's so.

I don't recall the Penrods race, but the sponson issue I referred to (flywheel cutting through it like a buzz saw) happened in Saugatuck. The hull was replaced and as I read back through this maybe more than once. According to George we built one after a "race in Miami". That had to have been one of the last things I had anything to do with at Shadow. We were involved in a bunch of squabbles back then.......... and I'm such a likeable guy.

This was a delam/ blow out.. I was 300 yds off his port aft qtr when it happened. He came in along side a 41 Coast Guard Utility boat with the pumps keeping him afloat. If you remember what happened to "Love It Again."... similar issue but closer to the transom if I recall.
