Experience Hydroplane History . . .

1958 Diamond Cup (Coeur d'Alene, ID) pitsWelcome to the Hydroplane History website. 

We are here to celebrate unlimited hydroplane racing, with particular emphasis on the "Golden Age" of the '50's and '60's.

We'll be updating the site frequently so we hope you'll visit often.

Nearly every small image is hyperlinked to a larger version. (Click on the small image and a larger one will be displayed).

Experience Hydroplane History . . . With the last update the website contains 2604 pages of text and 2043 images so there's much to see. Click around and have fun.


NOTE: I've switched over to a new webhost (Dreamhost) and I'm moving from the html editor I've used for 17 years (FrontPage) to Dreamweaver. Frames will finally be eliminated and standards will be implemented -- I'm taking the leap to HTML5 and CSS3.

The content will be reorganized considerably. After the updating of current pages I'll start adding new material -- stats, race reports and much else. I also have a large collection of race videos that will be digitized and streamed.

All the updated content of this site will be moved to a new location:

Hydroplane History (www.hydroplanehistory.com).
