"Miss Moonshine"

Site updated on: 20 August 2021

A Vintage Hydroplane - where to find one - why not make one from scratch - but build it "true" to the era.

This is it - The hydroplane project.

This site details the ongoing construction of my boat "Miss Moonshine" - based on the Rich Hallet designed and built hydroplane "Alter Ego" owned and raced by Paul Sawyer in the early 1950's.

Check out the history and story of the original boat and keep up to date as I try and recreate a piece of history.
