    My dads old SE boat built by Bunky Bowerman was sold to Paul Heathman and he set the Kilo record somewhere around 85 mph Paul said it over heated at the end of the course on the last pass to back it up as he was running the motor so high with no LWP allowed. Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures of this one. SE was a great class back then.

    Heathman was another driver better suited to a seat in the "Race of Champions".

    The eighties was by far the most interesting time in tunnel boat racing.

    Well in 1984 Rick Frost drove 144 MPH in Windermere with the older style Burgess and a Johnson V8 carb model with 12 inch mid section.

    In 1985 came the more powerful fuel injected V8 with 6 inch mid section. In a combination with better boats more than 150 MPH but under 160 MPH.

    Ben Robertsons 141 MPH average on one lap is pretty brutal..(1986)
