D Hydro

About three years ago I went on an antique auto tour with my father in Georgia and Florida. One of the many stops we made was at this fun museum that had a lot of everything in it, including these older APBA Outboard racing boats which are what my father used to race in the 1950’s and 1960’s which is why I have such a deep love for outboard racing and outboard engines. The F1-H2O Outboard Racing series is on this weekend from China and I can’t get it on my TV which completely sucks man!!!

The old black and white photo is my father in his F Hydro in 1967. The difference between the D Hydro and the F Hydro is a matter of two more cylinders. The older Konig F engines were a vertical six cylinder engine. As you can see, the D Hydro engine has four cylinders and has a different cylinder configuration Are ya with me so far?? Having grown up with boat racing, it’s deeply ingrained in my soul.

There, now you’ve had a little outboard boat racing education!
