Notes about the Model:  The sponsor was Charlie's Girl comedy club in Seattle. It was powered by a big block V-8. Although the boat was light, it was either under powered or had a totally wrong set up. The boat never qualified in the original set up but the the Evans brothers converted it to Allison power and although it was not competitive, it ran far better. It had several sponsors, a couple that come to mind was Century 21 Realestate and Mark and Pack stores in Eastern, Washington. I chose the boat as my grandson's name is Charlie.
