This is Important, Updated From Original Blog Post - August 12, 2012.

I'm sure many of you read the original post which I submitted over a year ago. We've acquired a great many new Website Members since that time and I think the message is still relevant and important. Perhaps even more so with the projects and activities we have planned. Please Join Us!I was at the Museum this morning helping Don Mock work on the horizontal wing for the Blue Blaster when fellow member, Bob Senior, came over to say hello and to check on our progress. Bob is a very special person…See More

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…

Ferrari Hydroplane, ARNO XI

Posted on February 24, 2013 at 2:50pm 0 Comments

As a Ferrari enthusiast and former seller/broker of Ferraris, I've been acquainted with this famous boat for several years. I've been looking for a scale model of it for some time. the only ones I've seen are a 1:43 scale resin model kit  produced by FDS about 20 years ago and a large scale kit by Amati which can be built as either a static or R/C model. Not cheap however. (but I am) There also seems to be a number of built versions coming out of Asia of varying degrees of…

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.
