In the December issue of the ECRU newsletter, Kirk Pagel reports that Greg O'Farrell's newly acquired hull will race as U-50 in 2008. The hull (nicknamed Lucky) was previously owned by Fred Leland.

Kirk also reports that former Bud crew chief Ron Brown has sold his complete machine shop to O'Farrell. That means they'll be able to manufacturer their own gearboxes and props.

O'Farrell last year also ran the U-48 Lakeridge Paving with driver David Williams. It hasn't been decided if they'll run two boats in 2008, but it's possible. Also, no driver announcement to date.
