1958 Moto Morini 75 Tresette Sprint

Moto Morini’s origins began with a partnership between Mario Mazzetti and Alfonso Morini, who built a highly regarded two-stroke 125cc race bike as their first motorcycle in 1924 under the marque Motocicli MM. MM bikes were remarkably successful in the 1920s and 1930s, with their 125cc establishing six world records at the Monza racetrack in 1927, and their 175cc setting a new record for its class with a speed of more than 100 miles per hour in 1933. Morini, wishing to expand the business and increase production, broke with Mazzetti in 1937 and established a rival business under his own name. This was a significant gamble, as the motorcycle industry was in considerable turmoil while Italy’s economy was mobilizing for war. Morini’s fledgling factory produced lightweight trucks and then military equipment during World War II, prior to the plant’s partial destruction in Allied bombing raids in 1943.

With each week that passes... The Lady Essie

69 year old Capt James Murray lost the Lady Essie in August 2013, about a month after I took this image while towing another Shrimp Boat out of Hilton Head Island. Both boats ran aground, were damaged, never and never recovered. James told me he had been shrimping for 50 years and working off Cumberland Island was his favorite spot to work. We were really looking forward to seeing him berthed in our Fernandina Beach neighborhood a few months later. Help me capture the handful of the remaining wood hulled boats!
