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

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....

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…

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.
