If this rain keeps up i think I'm seriously going to need one of these!
This boat was built in Williamstown Victoria by a gentleman named Tommy Watts.
Story goes he signed a deal with Mobil in 1964 to buy fuel at 8cents a gallon for the next 10 years and when the fuel price went up to 27cents a gallon in the early 70's Tommy went laughing all the way to the bank and set about building this hydroplane.
