1989 World Championships

Here's a change of pace . Someone posted this pic on OSO from the 1989 Worlds in Atlantic City . My boat is right in front of the bait shack . This was the last race I ran without a reinforced ****pit and canopies . Check out the European boats , they always had crazy stuff . There was one boat at this event where the pilots sat in the front of the sponsons , literally right in the beaks .
This brought back some good and also sad memories , the ocean dictated the pace . It was cold , rough and we lost a friend at this event .

Thats awesome... and explains alot about where you achieved the skills to jump on a new car and home build a turbo kit... I would love to have had the oppurtunity to take part in some high end boat racing... but oh well... I'll stick to trying to achieve something with my car... Hopefully by March...

Having worked with a bunch of English, French, Germans, Norweigans, etc... I will testify to your statement that yes they are all certifiably crazy... but they do have fun... even the tight a&&ed ones with no sense of humor... get them away from the crowd and they will laugh and cut up... Alot of it is a public personna... They are almost all complete nuts...

That was fun Bruce, meeting her and her husband!

Sorry you didn't get to go. The cruise was a blast. The weather was perfect for racing. Three people I know broke into the 10's for the first time all within an hour.

Back when APBA was less than a splintered organization. I like your Cat. Lots more V-hulls back then. The one nice part is the racesr are safer now.

I am glad they wanted to run you. Both of you had broke into the 10's for the first time at 10.97. The other cool part is that when you ran her, your 1/8 mile was virtually identical and you both ran 11.04. Doesn't get any better than that !! Also had a good time chatting with you on Saturday night. You have and continue to do some very cool stuff.

Great seeing you and your family again Norm. Your son should be proud of completing his brown belt in Tae Kwon Do. That is an accomplishment. Also, the Camaro is lookin' awesome. Quite a difference since last time I saw you.

Thread jacker I am ! Seriously he OP graciously granted me permission to toss up a boat thing occasionally since the Sea is also one of his mistresses .
I love the cars . Muscle , exotics you name it but a catamaran ocean racer literally flying over the waves is a rush .
Anyway , I just ordered a 418" rotator to complement my turbo . I've been tinkering with the Camaro from day one and breaking it one piece at a time .
How's the ocean treating you ? Are you healed up ?
This build caught my attention , as yours did . Did you notice the wiring in this car ? Everything is over the top here , way advanced .

The only bad thing about fast boats is nothing else is ever fast enough.
