Jennie Lee II, a 22-year-old Class I inboard runabout won the Ocean City, N. J., 43-mile marathon on Memorial Day to capture the John E. Fite Memorial Trophy. This 1929 Chris-Craft, owned and driven by Richard R. Lovett, Jr., led the starting field of 10 back to the finish line, chalking up an average speed of better than 50 m.p.h.
