This photo added to Tim Settle’s BARRACUDA page.
Thanks Keith Brayer for the photo.

This is Joe Taggart’s 7 Liter hydro “Tomyann” that had 3 Mercury flathead engines.
It was reported that the front one was hooked direct and the rear two were connected via belt drives.
The belts kept burning up and the idea was scrapped and a Fageol bus engine was used instead.
135 cu. in. x 3 = 405 cu. in. = seven liter
Ventnor 225 plans are available to purchase from Keith Brayer.

at least that is what the website stated:
1947 Norman-Lauterbach-designed Lyndora
Piloted by its builder Bob Roland, Lyndora had success in National 220 Class racing. It passed through several owners, was restored, shipped to Britain and appeared in the Brooks Summer Auction at Goodwood House in June 1993. Lyndora currently resides at the Classic Boat Museum, in Cowes, on the Isle of Wight.

Many thanks once again to Phil Kunz for sending in some photos to use for these calendars. I noticed that every photo used for the 2015 is HIS photo (even if I forgot to put a copyright image on them). Remember folks, I am ALWAYS looking for photos to post on these calendars. If it seems like I have been featuring all boats East of the Mississippi, that’s because nobody from the West Coast is sending me any and it sure would be nice to feature some West Coast Vintage hydroplanes.
