Something about 200 MPH top fuel boats attracts beautiful girls! I latched onto this beauty at a drag boat race and committed marriage 35 years ago!

Is this a great country, or what!

Cheers,

I was going to say Eddie's not allowed to play on this thread. :) But on Lake Huron today in whitecaps hitting 60 for 7 miles made me fell like fast Eddie for the day. And I'm coming up on 45 years with my beautiful best friend.

I am going to miss on the spelling, but I think it’s a Okkie Mannerfelt design. Sometimes called Bat boat, was a single design race class in about the early 90’s ?

The perfect "raft up" boat. We used to do that on Lake Shasta.
