" Sad to hear of Freds passing.  I first met Fred at the 1969 Seafair Hydroplane races on Lake Washington. I will be posting some videos I have of him being interviewed from 1980 untill last year.  Fred will be greatly missed."

I like what you are doing with the vintage hydroplane exibitions this season.

This is a great tool for young and old to learn about the sport from years pasts.

I was at the lake today and it was a great site to see and hear the great boats from the past run. If I could be any assistance on saturday or sunday in the pits  it would be my honor.

Pipe dream to drive.Just throwing it out there.I would be honored just to be with the action.

 

Sincerely

David, I noticed that the 1955 Thriftway and 1962 Bardahl are included in the restoration page. As a long time museum supporter (though from afar) I would be pleased to have the 1955 GALE V included. I would be happy to write something for the page.
