On Saturday, May 28th it’s Hydro Fever at the Hydroplane Raceboat Museum, 5917 South 196th Street, Kent, WA 98032. From 10:00am – 4:00pm, you can check out hydroplane memorabilia, and see Casper model races all day long. It’s the museum’s annual open house, and so admission is free, and a hot lunch will be available.

The museum started in 1983 and is the only public museum totally dedicated to powerboat racing. You’ll see a huge collection of vintage and Gold Cup winning hydroplanes. And you’ll find books, magazines, trophies and memorabilia on hydroplanes dating back to the early 1900s.

HYDRO FEVER will debut a new Exhibition at the museum that will run through the summer months. “EVOLUTION OF HULL DESIGN” features suchboats as: The 1919 Gold Cup winner “MISS DETROIT” replica; “MERCURY” the Missouri Valley Power Boat champion, Guy Lombardo’s 1946 Gold Cup winner “TEMPO VI”, along with Seattle’s first race winner “SLO-MO-SHUN V”, and hydros right on up to the modern three-point-design.
