" Mud Mouse" what a great lot of photos. Photo #1 "SATURN" Photo #2 "VENOM" Photo #3 " ? " Photo #4 "NICKO" ? Photo #5 "BABE" ??? "SATURN" looks classy , bondwood construction gives the boat some clean lines. Doc.
Yes amazing pics, thanks again T & R."SATURN" is beautiful...very tidy ass. I can't make out pic 3's handle either. I think its pictured docked beside "SATURN" in pic 1.These images really capture the era in a kinda romantic way for me, love em!
the boat in picture # 3 is PHILNORM was owned by Norm BARRELL a Y block powered everingham, it is next to NICKO also a everingham the same as Philnorm but converted to a skiff it was powered by a flathead Dodge 6. That photo was taken at Deepwater. Philnorm is next to Saturn in picture #1 the photo taken at Cabarita, the boats are moored to a floating dock which they used to bring in for the bigger championship meets to accomadate all the boats. The boat next to babe is Michael R Trevor.
cheers for the history lesson, all very beautiful boats. Would never have picked "MICHEAL R" ...too cool!
