“Fleishhacker Wins (1931) Lake Title.

“Dollar’s MERCURY takes second trailing by three seconds; fire, spills, provides thrills.”

“ Yet neither Dollar nor Kaiser had counted on the re-emergence of another swift craft of yesteryear; Herbert Fleishhacker’s MAYBE NOT-II.  It was this speedster again which would take home the coveted trophy (Championship Race) that day, capturing the headlines again.  Back in the field after a four year absence, Herbert Fleishhacker Jr.’s MAYBE NOT II skimmed to victory against the close second of Stan Dollar Jr.’s MERCURY in the annual Tahoe Power Boat Club races last Sunday.  Leading all the way three seconds ahead of the Dollar entry sped by the checkered flag …in a thrilling meet marked by plenty of excitement and near tragedy.”
