I think I was there that year & recognise many of those boats, like pirate Pete kneeling & the Tinker with Holly.

Great boats, great scenery and great footage.

Until this I'd never seen a Seagull rigged on a hydraulic jacking plate and/or one powering a vintage style hydroplane.

All awesome stuff. Thanks for sharing.

Remote rise & fall brackets first appeared, in New Zealand around 02 & were electric, invented by one of the strangest Kiwi's of them all, Raoul Lealand of the 2 power heads on 1 leg & hover boat fame, this hydraulic version is a Ross Leger version on his boat, Ross is very quick & holds many of the Waikato race records.

The hydro is Pirate Pete Notman in/on a Minimost pushed by a 5R, another of the Kiwi race characters.

Searching on you tube using these 3 names should find you some good stuff.

You Tube has a lot to answer for.

Just as exciting is watching hundreds of spectators trying to launch their boats at the local boat ramp at the same time
and the race to the good viewing areas :lol:
