On its first run, the rudder failed and the boat with driver Larry Schwabenland went for a wild ride. Larry swam to shore, 3 members of his crew accompanied him back to the pits. Larry drove the next boat through, a flat bottom. I (HARLAN ORRIN) was on shore watching.

The boat eventually ran over 123 mph.

The boat had an experimental dual prop setup. It was eventually destroyed, possibly at Long Beach Marine Stadium.
