Since I am in CO and can't make the Crew Lecture tonight I will spend the evening enjoying the Video Vault treasures devoted to the Pay-N-Pak...

Hail The Pay-N-Pak and All Hail The Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum!

Though I will not be able to attend the lecture I did receive my orange Booster T-shirt in the mail yesterday and it is AWESOME!

Hail Pay-N-Pak!

I was at the Stan Sayers pits for the debut of the brand new 1973 Pay 'N Pak.  This home movie was taken from a 8mm movie camera (without sound).  The Pay 'N Pak footage starts at about 47 seconds .  I had the movie transferred to DVD and then uploaded to YouTube.

One of my all time favorites. Can't wait to the Pak back on the water.

When the boat was new it did not have the orange "Pay-N_Pak stripe that goes up the vertical wing support. Looking back it doesn't look right without it. Anybody know the timetable/circumstances of when the stripes were added ?

Proudly joining the 1973 Miss Pay N Pak group. Special thank you to Mike Hanson who is teaching myself and the crew a great deal about refurbishing this great race boat
