There are museums where you get to walk quietly and look at old relics behind glass displays; and then there are museums like the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum in Kent. Joining us this week for Seafair Sunday is the Executive Director of the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum, David Williams.
The museum is dedicated to preserving the history and heritage of boat racing in Seattle by not only displaying memorabilia related to the sport, but by actually restoring famous old boats to running condition, bringing them out to events like Seafair, and running them on the water in front of the fans of the sport.
The next big project of the museum is the restoration of the 1973 “Winged Wonder” Pay n Pak.
