About this Item

255 pages, illustrated in b&w. "Told through the eyes of a lifelong enthusiast and keen observer of people and events, this book portrays an inclusive sport that welcomed female contestants as well as men, and was racially diverse in an era when few sporting activities were. In these pages, you'll find the story of the American Powerboat Association and its trials with upstart rival groups, and you'll journey back in time to see what it was actually like to participate in the 1950's racing event. What's more, the author devotes two entire chapters to the collectibles spawned during those bygone days, from toys, books and magazines to speed parts and accessories." FINE SOFTCOVER.

About this title

Synopsis:

Offering a compelling and personal look at both famous and little-known men and women who participated in an immensely colorful and rewarding sport, this book looks at the period of vintage outboard racing from the late 1940s to the late 1960s. Today, the American Powerboat Association oversees motorboat racing in America. This book takes racing enthusiasts behind the scenes to tell how the organization grew and describes its highly visible struggles. Also covered is the life of the great journalist of the sport, Hank Bowman, and the increasingly popular hobby of collecting racing paraphernalia, motors, accessories, toys, and games. This is a book for those who lived the postwar story of American outboard boat racing and for those nostalgic enthusiasts and collectors who wish they could.
