It was with great honor I towed the famous Whitey boat and Dale Whiteside during the 2008 World Race in Grants Pass on the upper Rogue River. It was unfortunate there motor failed and put them on the beach, softly I beleave.
What an honor it was for me in my Eagle boat to tow such a famous Eagle, plus the head cheese at Eagle, Dale Whiteside.
I don't remember what went wrong with there motor but abarently they had been sitting on the beach for some time. There trailer crew was trying to find directions to the farm road on that side of the river and it was taking some time. So on my next pass by them I asked and they where happy to get on down the river. It was only about one mile to Griffen Park where there where hundreds spectators and boat people.
I love my Eagle and love showing off with it. So it was a cool feeling towing Whitey and the boys.
I would like to have a picture of us rounding the willows above the Park.
