Car museums are usually shitty places to take pics, anyway. Halogen spotlights suck.

I have some oddball stuff from a classic boat show. Any interest in me sticking it in here?

Give it a shot potter, not sure why you don't just start your own thread though?

This is an immaculate restoration of a 1951 Jersey Speed Skiff racing boat.
16 feet long and made of wood planking, it is powered by a 6 cyl Greymarine engine. They run a circle course of around a mile and had a top speed in competition in the mid 50 mph range.

Shot from the opposite side of the boat. The steering wheel would be in the lower right hand corner.

The modern version raced under ABPA rules. Fiberglass, 283 or 305 V8 engine, will run all day in the mid 70mph range. They tend to bounce around and crash in to each other at times, the roll bar is to keep you from having another boat run over top of you and stick a spinning propeller in your ear.
