We have a slew of new photographs added the SKIP A-61 boat page.

He’d love to hear from you!
From New Zealand:
Ben Knight (PG Knight’s son and Peter’s grandson) sends us a few pics of their restored A class hydro that they finished up on 2 years ago. They have been taking it to a vintage regattas in New Zealand.
The boat raced at Valleyfield in 1967 then won at Red Bank the following week. PR Knight designed and built the boat. It has a 2.5 Liter Ford motor from a Mk4 Zephyr. We believe it set a UIM world record in 1967.
We are also in the process of restoring The Godfather GP boat also.
BTW – Beautiful spot for a Vintage Race Boat Regatta…don’t you think?
I saw this new website look and thought this would be a nice one to freshen up our website with.
If you have a REALLY neat photo and think it is “cover material” for The Vintage Hydroplanes (like the old “Photo From A Moment” we used to do a few years back), please email it to me and if I like it, I will place it on the opening page of the website!
