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!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
