Noah Legear began racing boats just
as most people do, going from a simple first fast boat, to a little
faster rig with each change of boat and engine.
In 1969 he began racing in the F-E class in APBA sanctioned
competition. As time passed, the constant drive
to go faster was always overwhelming, and he moved up in the
classes until he was running in the S-J, SST-120, Mod-120, and
Mod-U class tunnel boats, where he continued to race until late
His accomplishments include several regional
championships, several national championship finishes in the top
three, and in 1981, a third Mod-U World Championship.
As a retail Mercury dealer from 1976 to
1985, he began to sell and market high performance parts
and accessories through his dealership, as well as becoming
involved in manufacturing a line of pleasure boats that sold
through a 66 dealer network until 1989.
In late 1989 he dropped out of the retail business to pursue
his racing interest and formed Eagle One Performance Products Inc.
to manufacture high performance boats, engines, and accessories
for the hot boat enthusiast.
The first facility was a 6000 sq. ft. operation
that grew into its current 15,000 sq. ft. facility with a
complete machine shop, powerhead dyno, and fiberglass
fabrication section as well as engine building, all
performed in-house with little or no work being performed off
premises. This building and location is still the home of Eagle One
Performance Products today.
