HATS OFF TO GAR WOOD
COMMODORE GAR WOOD has once again demonstrated his uncanny knack of “putting it over.” His “Miss America X achieved a mean speed of 124.91 m.p.h. over the measured mile, Gar Wood’s success is no matter of luck. He is easily the world’s finest speed boat pilot and is a first rate engineer, and designer. “Miss America” is entirely his own creation. The idea of having four engines
is his. He thought of taking the drives from between each two engines; and he sat at the wheel when his boat broke the world’s speed record. We take our hats off to him.
