Mark Cromie’s jet boat roared to a stop on the St. Joe River here Sunday ahead of the competition. The boat, powered by a helicopter engine, handled the tight corners of the scenic Benewah County waterway just fine, the 58-year-old, longtime boat racer said, crediting his experience with rivers back home in New Zealand. “Other guys are more used to open rivers,” Cromie said. “I’ve been doing it 35 years. It’s just skill.” Saturday’s and Sunday’s races were the beginning of the World Jet Boat Marathon Championship. Meghann Cuniff SR story here. (SR photo: Kathy Plonka)
