Thumbnail of Hydro's Who's Who (5805 bytes)Hydro's Who's Who 46-94 (with appendices for 1995 and 1996) by Jim Sharkey

This labour of love by Jim Sharkey is one of the better statistical collections I've yet seen, covering nearly all the races since 1946, tracking the two hundred or so hulls through their various names, numbers and drivers. If a boat appeared at a race it likely will be listed here. I got my copy through the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum in Seattle for $16. To those of us with a statistical bent it's worth many times that. Watch for a future edition with even broader coverage.
