    Default Cole Flatbottom 682

    Does anyone here know any history on this boat, like the orginal owner or?
    A friend of mine owns it now. Just wondering. In the background of the first pic.

    well the boat in the fore ground is the B boat the guy is looking for in the other thread. Billy B used to show against it, and that is clearly at a show. I'll bet he can tell you about it.

    This is all second hand information through my wife, from when she was a kid,... BUT 682 is Ron Kincaids original boat built in the late 70s early 80s... That picture would have been taken at a boat show in 1982 ish.. There was a Dad Kincaid and a Son Kincaid, I am not sure which one was Ron. The Kincaids raced that boat during that time, so I am sure old time races would know about it. They would be in their 60s age wise. 682 used to win at the shows against the other boat more often because it was blown, although EVERYBODY knew that the Beast of Burden was a better show quality boat! (that statement is how fights get started, and that was part of the show back then too, with hospital visits to prove it)... Let just say that those two boat fought in the shows and the two owners were known to fist fight too... This all took place in the Inland Empire of Southern California....

    Ron Kincaid was the dad. Gary is the son. Ron has since passed on. Gary used to race the "TOP GUN" alcohol hydro. The boat in question as fas as Gary told me was never raced. One of the old owners has a shop next to me so i'll ask him today. It was built for the show circuit at that time. I also showed against this boats also. Because we raced what we showed, we didn't have all the gold platting and chrome that these boats did but we did take home the best multi color paint trophys or best engine at quite a few of the shows. The best part was after the show on move out. I'd fire the "K" engine up in the arena. The other boat guys...NOT SO MUCH !!! After there fight at which I was present they both seemed to get out of it. Ron did help me a ton when I built my Sanger runner bottom that my brother now owns. We chromed a ton of stuff and gold platted everything we could and won alot with it which I owe all to Ron. Dick was also a great guy which made the situation all the tougher when it went down. I do remember like I said in the other thread when Dick did the trade and still can't believe that this boat never surfaced again.

    Once again.. Thanks for the Information Billy.. the York family appreciates it!

    Please disregard my incorrect info on the Kincaid boat and use Billy's info.. I only have the story's my wife tells and she was only 10-12 at the time.. But it looks like someone has the History on the 682 that they were looking for!.. I am still looking for the Beisemeyer!!!!

    We are very familiar with the trade for the Vette, Shirley my mother in law kept the Vette for a few years after Dick passed away and eventually sold that. Shirley is still very much alive and well and active with my family. She is who is digging up all these old photos of the boat and the boat shows...

    FYI.. there never seems to be any animosity about the whole fight deal, they laugh about it and just chalk it up to 1 too many beers type deal...

    I spoke with Dan Aseth and he didnot race a cole TR2 or this boat he had a Mako? Are there any other pics anyone has of the Cole TR2 682 that can be posted up?
