My Dad, Steve Severson,  would later get lots of photos of this boat, when it became Adios in the Tri-Cities. :-)

I have pictures of the 1955 Mile High Gold Cup. Scooter Too had a mohogany hull. In 1956, she was painted.

I'm not sure of the year. Just reading the handwritten note by the photographer, on the back of the photo.

Kirk,

Are you shure of the year?  My records show that Scooter Too did not have that paint job until 1956, and she can to Seattle in mahogany in her debut in 1955.

Doug,

That photo of the U-10 was taken in July,1955 at Lake Tahoe near the Kaiser estate on the lake.

Kirk, I am seeking some good photos of Scooter Too for my book.  Can you tell me if you know where/when this shot was taken? 

thanks,
