    If you think the engines sound great (and they DO!), you really need to get a ride in one sometime!!!!! Awesome, and unforgetable, especially for those of us who grew up around these thunderboats in the ’50s and ’60s. Uh oh, now I’m showing my age — but I don’t think I ever grew up, OR outgrew these childhood dreams.

    For those inspired by these old unlimiteds, you can play a key part in their preservation by joining the country’s only Hydroplane & Raceboat Museum. Your support, even from a distance, will be greatly appreciated.

    By the way, that cool YouTube video from Lake Chelan last year was produced by fellow Woody Boater Robert DaPron and his son.

    The Chris-Craft triple cockpit runabout in the beginning of the video is the DaPron families “Red Head II”.

    Read Head? That reminds me.
    Next week I’m going to go visit a museum about an hour drive from my home and they have a ‘RedHead’ hydro there that set the NZ water speed record so I will see if I can put an interesting story together.

      Perfect idea Philip. “Red Head II” was the name on Robert DaProns boat when it left the Chris-Craft plant in the late 1920’s.
