Notes about the Model: The wood over foam version of an 8255 hull was built in an attempt to make a a "better mouse trap" than my ML BoatWorks BOAT. The result was I just built another "mouse trap".
Notes about the Real Boat: The real boat ran for the first time in Tri Cities in 1982. In Seattle it got a DNQ, then became many other names and owners.
Notes about 2015: The Miss Houston driven by Bill Mowatt performed well at the first two races at Lacey. Hopefully, there will be an opportunity to race again in 2020.
