Powerboating is a sport that attracts millions of Americans. In a 21-page package Hugh Whall writes about the world's finest and most expensive sport-fishing craft and the family that builds them; Bob Ottum tells the story of Jim Wynne, inventor, bon vivant and hairiest ocean racer of all; and Jack Olsen reports that he found a zany kind of happiness cruising in the San Juan archipelago with his three kids.
Arnold Palmer tells how to hit out of water, gives a hint for keeping a safety shot safe and shows a sure escape from sand in the second installment of his trouble-shot series.
