Power on the River

June 19, 1960

Like frisky polliwogs, 24 utility outboards, part of a fleet of 82, spurt down the Detroit River past Con Edison Electric's looming power plant at the start of Detroit's annual spring outboard marathon. Breeze and freighter traffic were light, but before the 50-mile run to Trenton, Mich. and back was over, boat racers had survived 31 minor mishaps, two flips and a stove-in hull.
