EDGERTON—It was 47 years since Fred Falk had last skimmed across the water in a hydroplane.

Now age 65, he's firing up the 25 Super Stock Hydro Mercury motor of his speedboat to pay tribute to a childhood friend.

In memory of his friend Gary Burdick, Falk plans to race a hydroplane that once belonged to Burdick in this weekend's powerboat races on Lake Koshkonong.

“One of my friends said, 'Freddy, the only two things that'll smarten you up are fear and common sense,'” Falk said.
