Volume # 2
The racing action in this video comes from California, Texas, Saint Louis, and Reno Nevada where a top fuel hydro's throttle sticks wide open as he races towards land, just before the boat hits the bank at 160 mph the driver jumps out. The boat hits the bank and launches like a rocket ship into the air and disintegrates into nothing. That’s for starters.
Volume # 3
Highlights from this tape are from California, Arizona, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Dayton Ohio, and Monroe Louisiana. Included is the crash of the world famous Eddie (The Thrill) Hill when his boat disintegrates well over 200 mph. In Oklahoma a drag boat runs over a patrol boat. Than at Irvine Lake, California a Blown Alcohol Flat throws the driver out and then runs over him.

This volume is jam packed with fire scenes and engines exploding. A fuel jet blows an engine completely in half. A driver’s parachute opens up and the driver is sucked right out of the boat. The famous Bill Todd in Billy The Kid and the Hillbilly blow their engines and set their boats on fire. This was also the 1st year that drag boats started using roll cages.

This one is for the ladies, A 120-mph jet boat driven by a 60-year-old GRANDMOTHER crashes in the lights. The boat flies into the air and does a complete flip throwing the driver out. She walks away. a Blown Fuel Jet called GRANPAWS TOY crashes at ¾ track at Castaic lake in California and the 1st Top Fuel Hydro with a roll cage crashes.
Volume # 6
Outboard lovers, this drag boat catches on fire and rescue cannot put the fire out and the boat burns down to nothing. A jet boat loses control and runs up on the beach right in front of our camera man and runs over the timing lights. Two blown gas hydros run out of water and put them right up on the beach. This is just a small part of the action.
Volume # 7
This is one for the books, A Pro Gas Hydro called “THE LAST RIDE” runs through the ¼ mile and his throttle sticks wide open on him and he slams right into the Sheriff’s patrol boathouse and sinks one of the Sheriff’s boats. His new boat is called “The Barnstormer”. “Top Gun” a Blown Alcohol Hydro lands on the beach.
