When at least 200,000 Americans in Seattle alone remain in a fanatical frenzy over the sport through six months of every year, it is evident to me that there will be many more Gold and Governor's cups and Harmsworth trophies awarded.

To say that "the mere exhilarating chop that prevailed was a caldron of danger for the utterly unseaworthy hydros" is a gross misstatement.
The unlimited hydros are not the frail creatures described by your writer. I have watched the unlimiteds race in rough water at speeds that would destroy conventional craft if they could travel as fast.
The big hydros will hit 170 mph or better on the straights, and to ask their courageous drivers to race under the conditions that prevailed on Lake Mead would be comparable to requiring the Indianapolis "500" drivers to run on a track loaded with field rocks.
