Default End of an Era

End of an Era

Very sorry to say, I just received word that Rich Sutphen Sr. passed away this morning. Being a huge fan of the Sutphens as are you guys, I thought it would be proper to let the OSO community that weren’t aware, know. If any of his friends have memories or photos they want to share It could be a comforting memorial to someone a lot of us idolized.

Thoughts and prayers to the Sutphen Family.
Godspeed Sr. You were an innovator ahead of you time.

Very sad news to end a very sad year.....
Richie Sutphen has passed....
A truly great boat builder, a man’s man, and one of the most talented onboard hydro drivers in history.

His 7 liter Lauterbach , Miss Gangway, rocketing along at maniacal speeds, with him behind the wheel and his hair on fire, will live in ny heart forever......

God Bless Christine Sutphen, who stood so proudly by his side, and the rest of his family.

Always have admired the Sutphen brand and those that own the boats speak well of the family. Rest in peace.

I was lucky to have owned and raced 3 of his boats.

Dan and his father have always like Richie's boats, and are part of the northeast "clan" of Sutphen lovers..!!!
