    Jimbo drove this Boat at Parker 1975. The cover of this Powerboat is Parker 1976 with Geoff Briggs and Bobby Larsen driving. The photo is the poster put out by Evinrude. Jimbo and Johnnie Sanders were driving the gold and white Goat Boat with a V4. Evinrude when Jimbo was driving……Johnson when Johnnie was driving. There were no American factory sponsored drivers that year at Parker. The factory only sponsored the Australian drivers that year at Parker.

    The boat cowling looks like a Scotti Craft.

    I talked with Bob and his wife for quite some time last year at the Havasu reunion. Yes it was a Scotti - one of the few pickle-fork Scottis. Bob was very humble about his racing success in the 70's. His wife was really great to talk with, she knew virtually every boat Bob had over the many years he raced. It was a real 'walk down memory lane' talking with both Bob Larson and Bob Holloway - both great California racers of that era.
