I've taken some photos of a couple of my newest hydroplanes. The first one is Casey's boat, the Revenge. It's not a historical boat, and the only one I've painted that is not historical. He likes the game and wanted a custom craft. We shared some ideas and agreed on a pirate theme, hence the Jolly Roger and the name Revenge in Old English characters.
The second boat is the Mariner Too. It was an entry in the 1965 Gold Cup and was driven by Fred Alter.
Just a reminder, if you are a regular reader and live nearby, we're running a hydroplane race on the 19th at Game Matrix around 11:00 Daveshoe has put together some rules for multi-heat races including pit crews and a rule for nitrous oxide bottles that should make racing a bit more strategic and interesting.
I'm a high school history and journalism teacher, a career I've loved and continued to enjoy. Aside from my family I have several passions-miniature wargaming, movies, books and music. I'm also a died in the wool Mariners fan and baseball lover.
