    My dad was a ham radio operator and taught me to solder before I could ride a bike. That's a skill that comes in handy in this hobby for sure.

    My dad took me to the Miami marine stadium back in the early mid 60's for the boat / hydroplane races. I took my kid, same place late 80's early 90's. And at that time at 13 he was the youngest racer in the club, a very old 20 mono he had to figure out how to keep running Ha,Ha, family tradition we love all things motor sports racing, specially boats.

    I picked him up a barbwire xl from Steven, a really good little boat trouble free. We also built him a delta force 33. He likes my mean machine 2 and my df pirate.
    But anyway it's all about the memories. Have fun.

    My son has been racing since he was 9. That was 10 years ago. He's a pretty solid racer now. How cold he not have been sucked in though. He;s seen every kind of boat built at the house at one stage or another. He's not much a of a builder but at least he will wrench on them. He's always got an idea whether I want it or not. haha Those early years were brutal trying to keep everything running.
