The owner / restorer of Miss Wahoo would probably frown on my suggestion – but this 2.4m restored woody hydroplane would look amazing hanging from the rafters in a boat shed, bar, man-cave etc. Or maybe attached to a wall vertically.
Or of course you could pop a small outboard on the back and have some serious fun. Uber cool xmas present for the kids / grand kids 😉
It is currently on tme and I reckon will sell quickly.
Check out this short 1955 movie of hydroplane racing in the UK.

And at the opposite end of the mini boat speed scale, when I was working at Keith Atkinson’s yard in Browns Bay during school holidays, his son was racing bathtubs across the Waitemata. I remember he was modifying the props into sharp looking lethal weapons to get extra speed.
Hi Keith – see below
Reminds us of the Auckland Mini Powerboat Club racing at the Boat show, Mr Schimanski of Briski used to clean up regularly.
Do you have the listing please i can not find it. Thanks Keith
