Ski Biskit Crackerbox boat

PHOTO ON EBAY
*
I found this old picture recently on eBay.
Appears to be an old Cracker Box boat named
"Ski Biskit"
*
I would put this in the late 40's early 50's and probably
running an old flat head.
*
Anyone know about this boat?  Pics??

P-94 Cracker Box




Long Beach Convention Center
=========================
*
I went over to the Long Beach Convention Center
Boat show and parked there was the P-94 Cracker Box.
I think this boat is outstanding!!!!
*
Spoke with Chuck ( owner ) who stated it was a 
new build Cracker.  He was very pleasant to talk
with and mentioned the races are coming up in 3 weeks.
*
There is a link on Youtube with a camera mounted 
on the deck and the boat testing on the water --- fun!!

WW2 Bomber steering wheel - Control YOKE ???



1948 Cracker Box Boat
*
Does anyone have any idea what this steering wheel is???
*
I have been told that it is from a WW2 bomber..
*
This would make sense that since the boat was built
in 1948, there was a good supply of surplus stores
around back then.  When guys were building racers
they seemed to use old airplane steering wheels.
But what is this one from??
Any ideas???
