I really love the quote from the end of this video. 5:00 - 5:40.

https://vimeo.com/27836629


"people tell me you've got to move to Hollywood if you're going to be successful at making movies."

"well . . . I'd rather deliver milk at Dana Point than live in Hollywood."

"Everybody sort of turned out to be successful, but it wasn't b/c we were looking to be successful. We were just looking for living in an environment that we liked."

"I think we're all just looking for an environment that we like."

Thank you VERY much to BigShrimpin, Island Trader, and anyone else responsible for putting this up. This is something I've been looking forward to seeing since I was a kid reading anything I could find on SeaCraft's.

Tim and Terry-
Thanks for the long road to posting this after so many years. When the site launched in 2/2002, it wasn't long after that the hype began on here back when Mr. Potter was making occasional trips over to hang out with Capt Chuck, work with Don Herman, ect.. It really shows our boats in the beginning moments of Mr. Potter's strong contribution to the 1970's offshore recreational boating crowd. Our boats look awesome and I enjoyed watching that twin 140 Tsunami handle her own.

Does anyone know if this film was played at the Maimi Boat show at the Sea Craft booth in the late 1970's? As a kid i remember climbing on The Sea Crafts and a video (movie) was playing with the boats running etc. Watching this made me have a flash back.

Yes! Bill Potter used this film to promote Seacrafts during the 70's at many boat shows.
