Before you view some of the finest boats available in the Country, please look at this photo of long time family friend, Chuck Mistele driving the legendary Miss America IX , the only operating Gar Wood racer of its kind in the world, two time defender of the Harmsworth Trophy and the first boat to lap 100 MPH in a race! Owners Chuck & Diane Mistele continue to keep Miss America IX in magnificent condition. I had the opportunity, & great pleasure to have an unforgettable ride with Chuck and his Dad, nearly 40 years ago while I was photographing her for Sports Illustrated. She is not for sale of course, but take a look at http://www.missamericaix.com/ Enjoy!
