The Pak is almost back?

Great progress is being made by the 1973 Pay 'n Pak restoration crew. If you haven't down to the Hydroplane & Raceboat Museum, it worth the trip to drop in and view the progress in person. In addition to checking out the Winged Wonder, there is plenty of other great vintage hydroplanes and exhibits to experience.
