R.I.P. Huell Howser.

Miss his programs, but at least many of them are now available to enjoy at the archive that
Chapman University here in California made available after receiving it from Mr. Howser.
Enjoy the traditional water ski race in the Pacific Ocean and of course some good 'ol boats.

Interesting seeing a mid fifties Century Coronado at about 6min20sec.

Very cool Lars. I'm always amazed at what the ski racers will do. Nordic put a 1350 in there 21 below for ski racing at 100+ :eek:

Glad You fellows enjoyed it. There's even a Team Warlock 28 showing at around 3:35 so I new that wouldn't hurt :smile:
In 1990 Prime Ticket did a great coverage of The Catalina Ski Race and Daniel Steel did this upload and he's got a few more videos uploaded from other years of the race.

Here's a short documentary from the 2010 race I also like. It's following the members of The Terrible Herbst Motorsports Team.

Yeh You are of course right about the 23. I was thinking about Bill's awesome 28 when I was typing along and that caused the typo :) Well You keep posting these Warlocks Greg. I very much enjoy following the ones coming up for sale and I bet You have a following that appreciate all the info you have shared about these wonderful boats.
