Far from the pomp and prestige of the unlimited hydroplane racing circuit, John Peeters is quietly closing in on hydro history. Earlier this month, the 31-year-old Stanwood man won his sixth straight national championship in OSY-400, a popular class of limited hydros. The six national titles in a row equals a recent string by Buddy Tennel of Buford, Ga., in the 125cc class for the longest consecutive runs of national championships in American Power Boat Association history.
