Yesterday on the ACBS award list, some comments were made regarding a little Special Racer Barrel Back, Like Mighty Mouse BTW, was not really a race boat and shouldn’t be judged that way. So we thought we might pose the question here for others to have an opinion. And you know you have one.
After all, if you have ever been to the races, cars and boats, just about anything is a racer, it’s more about the driver and use, than the boat. Ever been to the Pinto Races? Really, Ford Time bomb Pintos have a huge following in SCCA racing. PINTOS!
But just because Chris Craft called a boat a Racing Runabout, or “Special Racer” can it be judged next to a insane Hydro boat raced? Should the boat have a history? For example we know Mighty Mouse was raced. Alot, no documented history, but she was known in the area. Is she a racer? Hell yes! Is she as sweet as a Million Dollar huge race boat? You know what they say out in the universe regarding this issue. What ever floats your boat! Let us know what you think.
