    Shoot2thrill Pix has acquired the rights to NNRT Images. all photos are watermarked and Copyrighted. and will be making prints from the files if you have any question PM. Enjoy



    Not sure what year this photo was taken, or where exactly, but Chris and Mark Lavin started running this boat in 1984 I believe. It was a 30' Chris Cat with twin 625HP Mercruisers and set a speed record at 101.257 for their class. Pretty sure they ran this boat two seasons, 1984 and 1985, then built the bigger boat in 1986. In 1984 with this boat they won the US National Championship. Then in 1985 with this boat they won the World Modified and UIM Class II titles and the Key West Championship. (Any corrections?)

    Again, not sure the year and race, but this 38' Bertram Competition was built for Sandy Satullo and delivered to him in January 1976. According to Sea Race by John Crouse, Sandy thought he was buying a super light Kevlar racing boat, but the factory was so afraid he'd break the prototype they actually added 1200 pounds to the boat. After Satullo sold it he is quoted as saying the boat would last a thousand years. (Page 250, Searace, by John Crouse)

    we have about 1300 slides to convert we will let you know when we get thru them, hope to be posting about 2 to 3 shots a day



    I believe this shot is from 1989. Before that I think Paul raced his mother's 40' CUV diesel boat with surface drives.

    So far, no idea. Looks as if it's a 30' Chris Cat. Anyone?

    Innovation, built by Mike Drury in 1983 at his Maelstrom boat company and designed by Mike Peters, 35' long. Originally powered with triple 325 Evinrudes, but changed to 300 Mercs in 1984. In 1983 set a record with Copeland driving in Detroit of 87.4 in Detroit. It also set a World straightaway record in 1984 in New Orleans with triple 425 Evinrudes at 131.1. Gentry broke that record in 1987 averaging 148.2 with his 4 engine, 1100 HP each, 48' Gentry Turbo Eagle. In 1984, again at Detroit, it averaged 93.6 mph for the 171 mile race, with one engine broken less than half way into the race. Information Courtesy Searace by John Crouse

    Well, this was a tough one to find out about. We believe, after research, this was built in 1974, hull #7, of the game changing Cigarette 35 raceboats. It was originally owned by the same people who owned RIO, and later sold to Art Swift and renamed Daddy Cool. I believe it was owned by BYRDMAN on here at one time and was for sale back in 2008.

    A picture from the Miami Press way back. Information on the back also.

    Don't know the year and race, the 38 foot Bertram Flap Jack owned and driven by Howard Quam possibly. I think there were three Flap Jack Bertram's total, and have no idea which one this is. Anyone? The first one named Flap Jack was formerly owned by Preston Henn and named Bertram 49er. The second was always Flap Jack? The third Flap Jack was the old Copper Kettle? Help!!

    Need T2X here. This is, I believe, the 35' Conquest Cat that was involved in the fatal accident.

    Unless we are mistaken, that would be Howard Arneson, Chip Saale, and Lorry Azavedo in the first 38' Larry Smith Kaama with Arneson Surface Drives. It would have to be before 1983, because Walter Ragazzi bought it in 1983 and renamed it Hublot. The Sea Sweep boat (boats) were named that after Howard's Pool Sweep he invented and built. He then sold the company and invented the surface drive. I believe he bought this boat in 1978 when his other boat delaminated. Anyone?

    There is so much information on this Ajac Hawk boat out there , and I'm sure we'll have more pictures to chat about. Aronow changed the length of the 39' by blocking the mold at 37.6 and pulling Ajac Hawk out of it. This boat was introduced to the public in Argentina at the World Championship in 1978, with Jerry Jacoby driving and Bobby Saccenti throttling. This boat was the beginning of the line that was known as the famous 38 Top Gun series. Information Courtesy Banana Boat Company

    Ahhhh, an interesting boat, a Cigarette named Apache. I'll have to get ahold of Bobby for more first hand information. This should be Bobby Saccenti and Jerry Kilpatrick and ? in the Aronow designed 39' Cigarette Squadron XII.
