This boat was designed almost identically to the Miss U.S. by Ron Jones, and both boats debuted in 1974. Powered by a turbocharged engine, the Lincoln Thrift competed for two years under that sponsorship, before transferring ownership to the Squire Shop team. The boat was transformed into a modern hull and last raced in 1993 as the Miss Tubs.

In 1974, E. Milner Irvin piloted the craft. The boat attempted to compete in 8 of the 11 races, and had a best finish of 3rd in San Diego. The team finished 12th in national high points.
