    If it was a planter or a kids sand box it would be the first. Thank goodness he didn't cut it up and turn it into a BAR!

    I was wondering if it was original and like most people, I'm sure, but that paint really does make a statement and won a bunch of people over! I was in Oakland at the Estuary the day that Ray lost his life. Very sad day for all of us. Good luck with the restoration. The boat is in good hands...

    You wonder why someone would ever change it from its original origin?? They want to make it their own, but why!!

    Cheers, Spudz

    The attached photos of "PANIC MOUSE" were taken back in mid 1973 after Bob Morgan purchased the boat from Ray. When Bob bought the boat it was as if Ray stepped out of the boat and Bob stepped in. At the time Bob bought the boat from Ray, Bob was running the blown gas flat class and was looking to jump up to the fuel flats. Ray advised Bob to take it easy getting use to the boat and not to take it to the races until he was able to get into the throttle and stay there through the quarter mile, and what ever he did do not stab the foot pedal , get out of it and get back into it because the boat would kill you! After getting use to the boat Bob ran the boat for approximately two years until retiring "Panic Mouse". Looking at the head on picture you can see the fuel pump driven off of the Mag drive and the location of the fuel tank located to the right of Bob. Notice the "Boat News" sticker on the front of the fuel tank. (Too cool!!!)

    Photos are awesome...Your Dad told me about Mr. Morgan coming to see him a couple days ago! Lots of things to see that help with restoration...Not only the mag driven fuel pump, which we knew he ran( NEED TO FIND IF ANYONE KNOWS WHERE ONE MAY BE!), but also open flywheel(guess Red Baron is getting his cover back!), Squirt bottle mount on tank, moon tank(might be a 7 gallon? Maybe ask Morgan or Tate or Bubby), also all swedged fittings on stainless lines, little round piece above Boat New sticker is a brass fitting used as a breather...GOOD STUFF!! Got a few more photos from the scrap books that will help too!

    NOW it all makes sense...Saw these pictures a few years back...Here's a couple shots of Caselli in the 002 boat "Morgans Raider" after Morgan bought the boat. Photos are from a race in Texas. Boat in far lane in the second pic is Schwabenland in the "Jokers Wild"

    So did Bob Morgan change the number and the name of the Hondo after he bought it from Ray?
