This is Hull #18 of the 20 or so produced by Nordskog. It is pretty much all original, all the hardware and running gear are from when it was raced in the 60's. After an accident at Mission Bay in September of 1967, the driver Hartly White was killed and the boat was put a garage in San Bernardino.

After the accident, non of the running gear (engine, v-drive, etc) was changed. The headers were taken off and some seats were put in it, and it was used as a ski boat once in a great while. It probably saw water 20 times in 37 years, until 2004 when my grandpa gave it to my uncle who lived in Topock. He ran it at the river between Bhc and Havasu as much as he could get gas money. My uncle ended up having health issues and gave the boat to me in 2012.
