    Now on the other hand the powerboat Bjorn Borg is, should I say, more of an extrovert.
    Tennis Bjorn would not create his own sport's thread, but powerboat Bjorn is not reserved in doing so. I admired the quiet methodical tennis Bjorn, when he would defeat those loud-braggadocios Americans; Jimmy Connors & John McEnroe.

    However the powerboat Bjorn, is a great ambassador of powerboat racing and the outboard industry. And his public contribution; threads and posts reflect that commitment.

    Keep motoring on Lars 'Bjorn' Strom.
    One more answer to this Lake X Kid,

    I forgot about this but Björn Borg was living close to me outside Stockholm and Björn was a boating person. He also built a race boat and did some boat racing.
    Well..maybe it was the other way around "Tennis had a Lars Strom"......näääää...





    Yes..thats Björn Borgs race boat below in Stockholm..Nick name..Thundercan.

    DAH propellers , Don introduced me to Jimbo when I won the nationals in Eufala Ala. Don was one of the best prop guys in the business, my brother dated one of his daughters, it was his prop that won me the nationals.

    HeeHee..I have no memory of this picture and dont know how I got it..but I can see it is from my grandfather's summerhouse in the Stockholm archipelago.
    The t-shirt tells me it's 1973..probably a New Years Eve party and "poor little Lars" maybe had to much to drink..

    Roberto to Lars:

    This picture refers to the ON European Championship of Boretto Po 1975. The n.12 hull was the Cougar of Hans Pelster, runner-up behind Renato Molinari in the final classification, while the flying boat n.139 was the "Cessenari" of Van der Velden .... I was present and I have several photos of that event (even a couple of flight)
