Hull #7455


This hull debuted in 1974 as the Lincoln Thrift. The boat ran as the Lincoln Thrift for two years, when it then changed to the Squire Shop in 1978. Eventually, it was run as the automotive-powered Miss Bellevue Mazda and Miss Mid-Mark Distributors in 1992 and 1993. Currently, it is owned by Greg O'Farrell and the Go Fast Turn Left Racing team, and it is painted up as a Lakeridge Paving Display Hull.


In 1978, Chip Hanauer and Pete LaRock piloted the boat, named The Squire Shop II. It failed to finish at the Columbia Cup in the Tri-CIties, but finished 6th at the Squire Seafair Trophy in Seattle. It finished 13th in national high points.
