March and April Monthly 2017 Calendars are posted. Many thanks to Phil Kunz for gracing us with more of his photography work for the monthly calendars. So far, I am only showing the Tavares Spring Thunder vintage event for March 17-19. No word yet from the APBA Vintage folks for any other events.
From New Zealand:
Ben Knight (PG Knight’s son and Peter’s grandson) sends us a few pics of their restored A class hydro that they finished up on 2 years ago. They have been taking it to a vintage regattas in New Zealand.
The boat raced at Valleyfield in 1967 then won at Red Bank the following week. PR Knight designed and built the boat. It has a 2.5 Liter Ford motor from a Mk4 Zephyr. We believe it set a UIM world record in 1967.
We are also in the process of restoring The Godfather GP boat also.
BTW – Beautiful spot for a Vintage Race Boat Regatta…don’t you think?
