    I found a flat that wanted to come to my shop yesterday. I was just looking for parts for my 71 Sanger restoration I’m doing when I came into contact with a guy selling this flat. I know it’s a 1969 Barracuda it has the hull tag and I got the title but I don’t know much about this manufacturer...

    At Fabulous Freddies yesterday, when the manager asked me if I could move my car so that the tow truck could get this one. Somebody forgot to use the parking brake or even bother to put it in Park!

    The boat responded well to the new motor/pump and diet combo. Similar HP as the last one, with more torque and 250lbs less weight in the boat. We had a little test session yesterday in the lagoon, gettin it ready for the regatta. It launches so much better......just sayin:)

    Mike Thomas, aka Mad Max, aka Grass valley Mike was in a pretty bad boat crash yesterday. He was air lifted to Sac. where he is in surgery as we speak. Thats about all i know for now.

    Looking forward to lots of work so we can have lots good time ahead. 1979 Biesemeyer, any history is welcomed. Was told Ty Newton drove or owned at one time. Looks like it had the name "Winged Victory" which would have been SS514 driven by Chris O'Connor around 2002. Hope to have it back out...

    My mom was a huge fan of the boat drags. She was there at my first race and missed very few races. She was very supportive of me and the club we raced with. Alot of you guys new her from the races and she loved all you guys and the things you did. I will never forget the races we got to spend...
