If you want a copy of Searace, as far as I know you can still order one right from John Crouse's site. http://www.searace-crouse.com/electr...rder_form1.htm

Arasaki was actually built in a one piece mold in Japan. There were actually two of them. They looked identical except for minor changes to the paint job and the second one was a few thousand pounds lighter than the first.

No, it wasn't a Hyrdatech.

Funny you ask. I think I've found the mother load of ex race boats still racing in Trinidad.

I leave on Wed to go to Trinidad to cover "The Great Race" www.ttpba.com for Extreme Boats Mag.

My old Phantom will be racing with 1000hp blower motors. Looking at some of the pics on the web site, it appears like I've found where old race boats go in thier retirement, only to race another day.

Actually when the worlds were held in A.C. there were a few diesel boats.... one of them was from Norway and a 2-3 from Italy.
