According to his facebook page, Larry Lauterbach looks to be traveling back to the Lauterbach shop with this gem in tow.
A lot of fans will be glad to see this hydro come back in it’s racing form, if indeed that is it’s future. The word on Facebook is – this was the hull that Bill Sterett had and was reworking and planning on converting to the infamous, Chrysler Crew.
Regardless of whatever configuration is in the future for this hull, let’s just hope it will be — a rare Unlimited class Lauterbach restored.

I can’t think of a better photo to represent our Leap Year month this February than the 3 Jersey Speed Skiffs of DeGlopper Racing.
VERY interesting read on Woody Boater on this New Zealand home built boat (made of Kauri timber) and the man who was first in New Zealand to crack the 100 MPH barrier.

Monthly Calendars are done & will be posted for the year. However, only one photo calendar has been put up (above, for January).
After I receive the APBA V&H 2016 Schedule, I will add in the dates on each monthly calendar and post the rest of the calendars. I’ll add in pics as I get them.
If you would like to contribute a photo for inclusion on a future monthly calendar, PLEASE email it to me.
Hope everyone has plans for a HAPPY NEW (Vintage) YEAR!

Editor’s note- Sorry, neat photograph but I rotated the pic in case you’re wondering why the black box..
Above photo posted in Vintage Hydroplanes – Skiffs & Outboards – Canada on Facebook. Ross M. is posting Don MacDonald’s photo collection spanning 1940’s to 1980’s. Totally worth a visit!
I’m trying to make sense of this “boat for sale” description, no date (sometime after 1956) in documents associated with boats owned by Henry J. Kaiser.
Your site shows Restless II and III, but how does this boat fit in?
Thanks for any help.
