1969 HS Inductees

Donald L. GuerinAn honored official, Don’s APBA career spanned over 20 years.  He started as Secretary and Treasurer and, later, Chairman, of Region 2.  An early Stock Outboard Deputy Commissioner, later he became a member and finally Chairman of the SORC.  A Council member since 1955, he never missed a meeting in 14 years.  He served two years as APBA President.  During Don’s tenure as Chairman of the Special Events Committee, Outboard Pleasure Craft, Offshore and Drag racing were incorporated into APBA.
Calvert "Skeeter" JohnsonIn 20 years of race driving, Skeeter competed in almost every Inboard hydroplane class and won one or more national championships in almost every class.  Johnson is perhaps best known for his record-setting and championships in the hotly contested 280 class and the extremely fast and dangerous 266 class. Serious injuries from a 266 race in St. Petersburg FL in 1968 sidelined this perennial champion, but he still helped officiate at many Inboard regattas.
Richard McFadyenMcFadyen started racing with a rash of record-setting and championships in Class M Outboards prior to World War II.  The following two decades of APBA officiating included fathering the Stock Outboard racing program, largely through postwar Albany-New York marathons.  As Chairman of the SORC and ORC, McFadyen helped formulate many of the rules still used in both categories.  His engineering and manufacturing talents created many marine accessories still widely used in recreational boating.
