My boat was not finished being restored for the Keel and Wheels. We took the boat to the show because the Yellow Jacket group wanted it there. Keels and Wheels was featuring Yellow Jacket boats this Year. It was not judged. All below is about my boat...not one like it
(1) It is the oldest known existing yellow jacket.
(2) It is the only know Yellow Jacket existing that was a frame and ply built.
(3) It was owned by Yellow Jacket Boats Inc. and raced By Richard A McDerbty founder of Yellow Jacket Boats, who won the race on Eagle Mountain Lake TX in 1953 with it
(4) It was ran on Lake Texoma by Roy Rogers
Per McDerby’s Son (who came to the show) it was the first race boat built by Yellow Jacket Boats Inc.
