Fred Farley

Fred is the APBA Unlimited Historian. He has attended hundreds of races and has written about the sport for nearly 30 years. I am very grateful to him for allowing me to reproduce some of his essays documenting the history of the sport.

For reprint rights to any of Fred's articles, please contact him at <>.

The Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum website has an excellent autobiographical piece by Fred entitled, "Thunderboating - A Personal Memoir".

See also David Greene's article on Fred on the Hydro-Prop website.
