    program cover photo

    hey fish, i was in the stands for that race! do you remember he went up and past vertical, caught the tops of the cowls, luckily dragging him back down partway, just to gas it and go right on over? imo, he could have saved it, if not for the hairtrigger on the throttle. on of my favorite race/crash pics. sure wish we could watch races in the marine stadium again.

    Barracuda # 720 " Popcorn"- dual Mercurys

    Dear Oregon Barracuda- In the early '70's I pit crewed for #226 Dave Potter Molinari/Mercury from Seattle Wash. I have alot of super 8mm movie footage of outboard tunell hull racing in the Pacific Northwest in the '70's. I personally knew Johnny Adair # 720 " Popcorn" from Seattle who raced in the 70's in the yellow dual Mercury Barracuda. A perfect example of a OPC (outboard pleasure craft). Stock boat- stock engines (c/w speedmasters). Raced for points nearly every weekend. Very reliable rig! If you E-mail me at mrbenson55@gmail.com with your # or more imformation, I might have footage of Barracudas in the pits or racing.

  7. The Barracuda is a copy of the Dutchman tunnel. The hull has run slightly over 100 MPH with twin inlines. I believe the biggest problem folks get into is running the motor at too much of a positive angle pushing the nose up too high causing blow overs. The hull was designed around the inline Mercs power of that period running at a slight negative or netural position.
