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???

Cracker box ad 1959


An old ad that I found in one my magazines.
A Cracker with the Merc engine is RARE!!!
From a 1959 magazine...
*
By 1955, most Crackers were running the small
block chevy engine. Flathead boats were not
usually very common after 1955 as they were not
that competitive against the bigger motor.
