Marion R
One of the little boats about Tacoma that will enter when there is anything doing in the racing line is the Marion R., owned by Alvis M. Ray, of Tacoma. The Marion R., which was built by Mr. Ray, is 30 feet long by 6 feet beam and powered 5 h. p. Termaat & Monohan engine. This gives her a speed of 9 1/4 miles per hour. Mr. Ray, who is a speed boat boy of 17 years, has done a very good piece of work in this boat. In the New Year's Regatta she came in fourth, but was erroneously given the last place. The owner is willing to bet he can beat anything out of Tacoma with the same power. (The Western Yacht and Launchman. II (February 15, 1911), p. 32.
