Tommy, please DO! We love this stuff.
YES kicking the scanner up to 300 will help, but to make it readable you will have to at least kick it up to 600 then using photohop or another program kick the resolution back down to 72 to post it.

Brownie,

Is the Mark Raymond "Big Dirty" of which you spoke, the same guy that ran a V drive 18 Donzi in the old "funny boat" class? I think it was burgundy in color with an injected big block Ford?? I raced against him in a 15 checkmate that Ed Bradfield converted to an inboard V-drive for Dale Dull. Our boat was V-070 RATTLER, red metalflake. As I recall Big Dirty ran that Donzi into the pits at the Marine Stadium , throttle stuck and he leaped the seawall and hit an ambulance. Is my memory correct??
Those were some great days, Bill Sirois ran a North American S-18 with a Black Widow and speedmaster, Harry Schoell and his brother Gene ran the V-19 Scorpion Seabirds, George Auriemma was running a Champ, Billy Preston and the Harmon brothers (Bilt Rite interiors) also ran the V-19 Scorpions. Brownie, if I'm remembering this stuff and I raced against those guys when I was 15, and I know I'm old, you gotta be, well, REAL old Do you still have the Magnum Missile???

Steve
