The Dixie II was originally a replacement boat owned by Ed Schroeder and driven by Bar Pierce. In 1908, this replacement speed boat won the Gold Cup on the St. Lawrence River in New York.
The Dixie II was named such due to its identical 220-hp engine designed by Harry Crane. While some sportswriters insist that it was the Dixie III that won the 1909 Gold Cup, it is understood that the proper winner was the Dixie II.
