I remember that race weekend and that race. I tried hard but i was giving away too much HP and hull size and twenty years of hull design and technology. Made him work for it though.

Just some trivia

Henry Lauterbach was the last hydroplane builder to still be designing and building rear seat front engine hydroplanes. Despite that his hulls were still competitive against the front seat brigade of the day.

His hulls were and still are considered to be the pinnacle of rear seat hydro design. Midnight Miss was built in 1972 and won a US hydroplane championship in 1973 in the 7 liter class.

The engine is in and I have to plumb it and do the electrics. Even if it were to be ready the APBA would be highly unlikely to let me run it.

looking good with all this rain you might need it soon i was going to taree at easter but the cost was way more than i had and the apba wants a provisional licence for new hydro drivers.so the next outing might be the sackville run in may for the bridge race .

ive done two topend sprints two bridge to bridge races ive raced at raymond terrace once and done two fred willians reunions that taree power boat club under apba rules and day licence. but to do the easter weekend the were no day licences .im trying to get thrifty link hardware onboard until then its not possible to fork out what they want for full or half year when there is only one wage . so toukley and forster will see the hydro and possibly this years bridge run from sackville .depending on what the apba will allow me to run.there has been no firm decision whether the classic vintage parade will be charged entry and licence fees
