Like their land
counterparts of the 1960s and 1970s, drag boats were a work in
progress both in performance and safety. The difference was,
in comparison, the dragsters were somewhat safe - the boats were
arguably the most dangerous beasts on the planet. The mortality
rate for drag boat drivers was a grim statistic. There was virtually
no purses to be won. Most will tell you they were literally an
end to dump large amounts of money into the water. If you think
the land racers of the era did it for love - these guys REALLY
did it for love!
of WDIFL is dedicated to the daredevils (the only name that fits)
who drove these blown fuel frisbees -- the ones who survived
the sport and especially those who didn't.
