The "Jelly Belly" boats that Tim drove/owned/crashed was repaired at Mike's Marine in Dixon by Greg Gilday/James Brendell afew years ago...It was sold shortly after it's repair...

I also have the top t-shirt which I picked up at the NDBA Nationals at Firebird in '81 (I think). I wore it twice.
Mine is bright yellow

The guy who owns it now contacted me a while ago. I will see if I can find his number.

This is the all white Kevlar capsule boat that was crashed in Phnx. in 04 or 05

Is this the boat you are looking for or one of the original Kurtis or Sanger's??

It is supposed to be all ready to go & He is selling the boat.

I took that picture in 1981 (?) in Chowchilla. I'll put it in my photos and you can download it from there. I'll also add the other "Flying Machine" photos I have.

John.. As I remember, it was converted back to an open boat...Is it a capsule boat again?

Mike, you may know more about this deal than me....

im looking for one of the old sangers, however i wont say no to the kurtis hulls he had. do you know where the sanger(s) are? the days when he had sangers were the best. was of when tim used kurtis for top fuel but when he tried to come back in the white elephant that was a total flop. I have a ton of flying machine stuff and id love to locate the old sanger and restore it but i got to find one of them

Pretty sure there were two alky Sangers & one fuel sanger. Then one fuel kurtis. Also pretty sure they are pretty much gone.

There was a time in the late 80's where you would hear about them. But not since them.

I do remember a boat that the guy claimed was one of Tim's. It had been repainted to look like a bomber on the front end. Sheet metal that tore off down the side.

Unfortunately they are probably gone.
