If there was any doubt about the U-37 Beacon Plumbing's ability to go fast, it was settled at Seafair. In the second lap of heat 2C in Seattle, Jean Theoret set the 2 mile competition lap record with a 150 mph lap.

That beat the record held by the U-16 Elam Plus with 149 mph.

Mike Webster and Ed Cooper talk about the refurbishing of Cooper's old hull with a piston engine into a turbine engine for the Webster Racing U-22 team as Mike picks up the hull in Evansville.
