Teaser Returning Lake Okoboji

"Teaser was fastest boat on Lake Okoboji with a 450 HP Liberty engine. Her top speed was estimated at 80-90 miles per hour. Judging from dock construction and clothing fashions, I would say early 1930's to 1935. Note after 1929 collision of Miss Thriller and Zipper (a Hafer Craft) the state legislature lowered the maximum speed on the lakes to 15 miles per hour. Also can see in background a large steamer's smoke plume across the lake." (Don Oleson, Okoboji Historian)
