The McCullough brothers of Honey Harbour Ontario, already boasting a number of restorations to their credit, have been working over two years to re-create a hydroplane created by renowned designer Bruce Crandall in the 1930s. The original pattern has been lengthened to 19 feet. Originally powered by a four cylinder flathead engine, the enhanced version of the design will be propelled by a 350 Magnum engine, pushing this stepped hull racer far past its forbearer’s speed record. Mike and Bill have reached a stage in the construction where they can begin applying the cedar rivet-fastened skin to the frame.
