Ski Biskit Crackerbox boat

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 ??

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???
Thank you
