Description

Read about the adventures and mis-adventurers of a rookie inboard hydroplane driver as he learns how to drive an eleven foot long, ninety mile per hour, alky-burning prop-rider on race courses in California, Arizona, Utah, and Washington. Experience the wild elation of victory and the disappointment of defeat as the author relates various anecdotes of accidents, engine explosions, lost opportunities, bad decisions, and lucky wins. Gain insight into the behind-the-scenes activity that supports power boat racing: the seemingly endless hours of engine building and hull maintenance that are required in preparation for a few minutes of all-out racing action on Sunday afternoon. Tag along as the author chases parts, repairs his hull, re-installs the engine, and "safety-wires everything". Then strap on a Gentex or a Lifeline jacket and a Bell helmet and join Bob Foley on A Wild Ride.
