HIGH POINTS
CHAMPION

John Hogan

For the second straight year John Hogan takes home the District 8 Overall High Points Award! Competing in 6 classes during the racing season John totaled 22046 points.

John first joined District 8 at age 14 in 1981 with his father Charlie. They built a B-Mono as their first boat, followed by an A Stock tunnel. By 1984 he had built a pair of Sport 40s and the love for hydroplanes grew into a life-long passion. This is such a great hobby for all ages and skill levels which is what kept him into model boating for the past 41 years.

Like many of our club members, his passion for building, designing and racing model hydroplanes led John into full-size inboard hydroplane racing in the Grand National and Unlimited Light classes from 1995 through 2002. Model boating never left his blood though, and for the past ten years he has not had to risk life, limb or bank account to enjoy the same experience but on a smaller scale.

“Luckily this year my equipment held up all season allowing reliable finishes and my driving improved over 2021 as well. Still not the fastest in any of the classes I ran by a long shot so I will keep learning from our members how to improve boat performance ” – John Hogan
