Slo-mo-shun IV Rides Again
Lake Washington, Seattle, Washington, June 26, 1999
Slo-mo IV, June 26, 1999
|"Here's a picture I took this morning of the Slo-Mo-Shun IV as it was being
lifted off its trailer prior to re-creating its June 26 1950 mile record run on Lake
Washington off of Sand Point -- about a mile and a half from where we live. Ken Muscatel,
and Ron Jones, ("riding mechanic"), had the boat up to what looked like maybe
150 mph on the flat waters of Lake Washington.
"It was a lovely sight. First time I have ever seen the IV run. She looked like she had plenty of speed left in her."
|"Here's a shot of the boat after it had returned to the dock."|
|"The boat on its trailer and driver Ken Muscatel, (who flew in last night from
the race in Evansville to drive the Slo-Mo this morning)."
