    Backfire
    Backfire, I am very happy with the video. The variety of boats and motors than ran at that race is amazing. There are a lot of legendary boats and racers in the video. I'm pretty sure in addition to the boats you mentioned I saw the rare Powercat Danny is looking for pictures of, both McDonald OMC tunnels with the OMC stackers, 2 Eis Supercats, 2 Dutchman tunnels, several Schulzes and a probably a Scatcat. There are 5 or 6 different Wings, 4 or 5 Jones triples (maybe 6, I knew about the 3 Merc factory entries, but there are more triples besides the factory team!). I think at one point the man standing in front of you was Joe Swift. Someone who was there could probably put more names on the people.

    The variety of locations and angles keeps it from being boring ... you have by chance what producers and editors strive to create.

    Dick Sharp's Glastron Molinari restoration

    Dear Scott- While going thru my super 8mm film of outboard tunnell hull racing in the Pacific Northwest in the early '70's, I stumbled on footage of # 157 Dick Sharp's yellow Glastron Molinari with the Evinrude X-115 you are restoring. I knew Dick from racing against him while pit crewing for #226 Dave Potter Molinari/Mercury from Seattle, Wash. As a matter of fact, Dave ran a Glastron Molinari with a Mercury 135 BP DC Stacker before he got his red Molinari Marathon that we raced at Havasu World Outboard Championships in "72 that can be seen at www.gosee.tv/boatracing I was at the race at Lake Stevens Wash. when Dick blew your boat over & broke his leg. Dave Potter was the first on the scene ( I miss him & his dad Les) & I assissted in the rescue! I can be E-mailed at mrbenson55@gmail.com for any further asistance in your projects history. Mark Benson-Producer Vancouver British Columbia Canada

  12. Thanks for the update...things are progressing

    Mark:

    Thanks for the additional information concerning the Glastron Molinari that Scot and I are restoring.
    I will contact you at your e-address to see if there is a way to ge a copy of the film that you mentioned.
    No new pix right now...we should have some progress to share in the next month or so.
