Gale IV & Miss Supertest II in the 1955 Maple Leaf Trophy, Windsor ONThumbing a ride. That was the farthest from the mind of frustrated Wild Bill Cantrell as he stood on his stranded Gale IV and watched boat after boat go by the finish line. Cantrell came back to win the second heat of the Maple Leaf Regatta and finished third in the finale but the honors went to Miss Cadillac. In this shot Miss Supertest (right) and Short Circuit zoom by the swamped Gale IV.
