     There is no place in the USA better known for hydroplane racing than it's birthplace - Seattle. For those of us who have been to a race, it's more than the sound of the boats and the fly of the rooster tails. Its being down in the pits and watching people under pressure as they tune their boats to perfection. You never know what will happen. An engine could blow, a boat could even catch fire or flip, and then there is race strategy. What a ride!!!
