Providing information on hull development, powertrain technology, drivers, safety measures, racecourse design, and the growing hobby of restoring vintage hydroplanes, this fully illustrated volume explores these specialized boats that skim atop the water balanced delicately on the propeller and three small parts of the hull. Included in the appendix is a list of postwar racing record holders, along with the names of their boats and the types of engine used. This examination of sleek, brightly painted hydroplanes appeals to the casual and dedicated enthusiast, boat racing fans, hot-rodders, and vintage boat hobbyists."
