    Roy Ridgell & the Lake X Kid deliver a wooden Switzer Wing to Lake X in the 1960's.

    Happy 4th of July, Independence Day!
    In recognition to all the Airman & women (including P-38 pilots) and all the Wing Pilots on water.

    When we delivered the Switzer Wing to Lake X, I do not remember which boat it was. And if John Bakos or Dave Craig drove it, or maybe both piloted it on different occasions. The late Roy Ridgell is not available to clarify my inquiries. Click image for larger version.

    One V8 or 3 inline 6's...?

    5 decades later and Roy Ridgell, could have just one propeller on his Lake X race boat, instead of 3.

    Pretty sure it was the second boat built. I was working for Dave at the time. It wasn't too far afterwards Dave had the V wing. I think that was number three.

    There are pictures of two similar wings. One shows both of them tied up. The one called "Gulf Wind Marine" is also pictured completely aired out. I had always thought those two were the fastest of the wings.

    This was the second wing, and the first one Dave Craig got. I remember coming to work one morning, and there it was, right outside Dave's office window. Seems like in the race he stuck his nose where it didn't belong.. This one was the one that ran the kilo at the Lake X Six Hour. Jon Culver had a Power Cat and Bakos drove the wing. It was back and forth for the record. After 3 runs they had to register again. Bakos came out on top as Culver blew his over. A very exciting day, and VERY COLD. I ran in my bathing suit for the G Record. Ice in the bottom of the boats when we started. When you are 18 years old at a major event like this one, nothing mattered. Bakos ran 80.493..and I miss him.
