    However, Jackie, albeit your children have benefited from your business success. And learned from you, their dad, what tenacity and perseverance will accomplish.

    only time i ever heard those two words used together was in a letter of commendation i received from JACQUE and CYRIL BENSTEAD [COMMODORE AND SECRETARY OF THE LMBRC] AFTER WINNING THE THREE HOUR REGENT GOLD CUP. 1966.
    They always had a one and a half hour race for all the boats that didnt make the GRAND PRIX.
    CHARLIE SHEPPARD was the CARNITI DISTRIBUTER. He asked me to drive the new 55 twin cylinder in the main event and the 40 twin in the supporting event .
    I ran well in both events , but the last lap after the finishing flag— the 55 CARNITI chucked the flywheel through the plastic hood and it spun all the way up to the clubhouse steps .
    I was awarded the 2nd place in the one and a half hour race and 1st place in the big race —was always over 150 boats entered in the BOAT BUILDERS TRIALS.
    Letter i received after the event said i showed —SKILL—TENACITY AND PERSEVERANCE.
    So i have to confess ROY , your post brought back memories of some great times i had in the powerboat world .

    PS Charlie bought me the best pram money could buy as my youngest daughter Sam had just been born two days earlier.

    Pulled all three GARBRECHT / BEDFORD DAVIE RECORD BOAT out from under the bench in an effort to get them ready for the off meet.
    been promised the graphics for MERTS record hydro and the OMC effort .
    less than a month till the OFF ——- bit disappointed the two SIROIS WOMEN aren’t coming —- GENE and FRED haven’t said they are coming either but BRETT MAY is just thinking about it —— Jim HUnt will probably be a lasst minute entry.
    Cant really see the BOYDS not coming —-think they attended most of the meetings since 2011.
    Tell you what —There‘ s. been a shed load of effort gone into getting this together .
    trying to make it the best ever OFF event .

    Just dawned on me Roy—- your names not on the list of invites to OFF either —-so i am officially inviting you, most food is paid for . You just have to find a bed . Sorry my friend — was simply an oversight on my part .

    Nearly got the HOGWARTS trunk filled ——just shy of 50 kilos -100lbs—- reason for this is ther only a couple of wooden toys —rest are solid metal. Those at OFF get first dibs —- rest will go down to KEY WEST.

    DO NOT KNOW WHERE I CAME ACROSS THE UPSIDE DOWN CAMERA ???????

    For some strange reason —as well as turning all my PHOGGIES either upside down —arse backwards or sideways S+F, THEN make em „“UNAVAILABLE“ —just for good measure .
    Can any of you whizz pictureographers tell me what the hell is going on !!!!!!!
    i am not normally a stupid person——i do not fool about with the i phone when i take a snap —i try to do most horizontal [which is what my granddaughter CASEY said i should do] and sometimes i do it with the said device held in an upright position !!!!!!!! I never turn the camera upside down — so why do the damn phoggies come out upside down and arse backwards ?????? JUST ASKING !!!!!

    You really dont have to go any further than the OFF meeting to meet the people who made the pictures —if they aren‘t there —then they are probably no longer with us!!!!!!!
