    I was a huge fan of Bill Muncey and I, and the sport, still miss him.

    Never knew that’s race was his idea.

    #12 Cees van der Velden/Barry Woods in Paris 6 Hours 1975. Velden/Marlboro with a new cross-flow 2 liter V-6 from OMC. Cees is using the new mid section - gearcase.
    Another note..He is using the new 1976 200HP production design Johnson V6 cover.

    Secrets..secrets..this is how Renato Molinari kept his boat racing developments away from the competition.
    After the F1-V8 boat was in the water his team took the "cover" off.
    Put it back on before lifting the boat out of the water..
