1958 Potato Chip

 The "Potato Chip" has arrived.

We brought back this fun toy from our most recent trip to Cass Lake, Minnesota.  This boat was built by my dad in 1958 in shop class in high school.  He got the drawings and blueprints from an advertisement in the back of a Popular Science magazine.  I have fond memories of zooming around the lake on this sucker when I was a child and cannot wait for my kids to have the same thrill.  If the lake is calm, it's really a rocket.  Here are a couple more photos.  Just need a motor now.  Anyone have a 7-10hp hand controlled boat motor for sale at a reasonable price?  Leave me some comments or drop me a line.

Have a good week.  Stay cool.  It's HOT out there.  Hope to see you all soon.
