What kind of hull is in the background, A-911? Is that a 22' Velocity? "A" class was a great class back then-small and affordable boats. I bet an "A" boat back then, was more affordable then a P5 boat now.

A team way ahead of its time...

They either won or they broke.

Usually the drive was the weakest link...

Lady L with Peter Meyer was serious competition for Fever. It's so cool how the two competitors came together as one and are still racing today! They have got to have set some kind of a record as the longest ones racing in the sport....

Here was the 1st boat I was in with them before the Mirage came into the picture.

We won the Atlantic City race after I was asked to race with them with 30 minutes notice...
