That "Video Vault" Thing - It's going to be, well, amazing.

Well, despite my doubts and criticism about this idea, I had an opportunity yesterday to tour the studio and production facilities with Don Mock. That was not my original intent; I was simply trying to return things my relatives had stolen last Saturday night during my birthday celebration. The Miss Wahoo is back in her rightful place in the museum. If we do this again, I am inclined to not invite my relatives with towing packages and large pickup trucks. Those wacky charactersTo the point. Don…See More

As many members or readers of this Website might realize, I am an active member and supporter of the museum. I spend a lot of hours and days at the place.I never realized though what a terrific venue it was for celebrations and gatherings. It was amazing.

Indulge me here. I'm trying to prove a point I made the other day to some friends.

Posted on September 13, 2014 at 8:02pm 2 Comments

Okay, here's a question:

When you think about Unlimited Hydroplane Racing during the period from, say 1955 to 1970, what comes first to mind?

1. A Driver 

2. A Boat

3. An Event

No essay answers, please. Just tell me which of the 3 choices comes immediately to mind. It's easy to pick all 3 I realize, but I just want to know what you think of first.

Just curious. Thanks for indulging…

Seafair - Damned if they do and damned if they do....

Posted on August 5, 2013 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

I just logged on to the museum website just to see how many members had something to say about last weekend's event. I have thus far seen no criticism or whining about anything. I suspect all of you have some opinion about what might reasonably be considered one of the least attended and most criticized events ever. Your restraint, at least on this forum is pretty classy. forgive my poor spelling and punctuation, but my broken fingrs from falling off the truck on Thursday have yet to heal or…

The Sammamish Slough Races - a Rememberance and Show

Posted on March 13, 2013 at 2:44pm 0 Comments

Among the most popular outboard-hydroplane events during Seattle area summers were the races from Redmond to Kenmore by way of the Sammamish Slough, now considered to be a "river" since Microsoft moved into town and property values reached the point where the term is no longer acceptable to local real estate agents.

But to most of us hanging out on this website, it was always "The Slough". This annual event was a thrill to watch, especially near the Bothell Bridge. Though the races…

Phil.... Thank you and THANK YOU for keeping me informed on the "Blaster"...  My gosh what you you guys pulled off is just un-describable..... I'm literally at a loss for words....  I keep the rest of the family informed and cant wait to see her again.

Hey Phil!

Good to hear from you. I'm still frothing at the bit to get over and do some more "work" on the blaster. It's been an honor to participate in this project, and weather permiting, I'll be able to continue. (bonus, working with you guys has been a hoot!) See ya soon.

Phil,

 Thank you for adding me to your list of  "friends". Working with you and the other guys on the 77  Atlas has been,  and will continue to be, a great experience. I look forward each week to continueing our project to restore the "Blue Blaster". With Don's enthusiasm and knowlwdge it has been a fantastic ride and we have'nt even hit the water yet.
