at the Clayton Antique Boat Museum, we also had discussions with our
friends Fred Schmitt, the Executive Director and Emmett Smith, the Curator of
Watercraft and we have found a new home for
Scotty at the Clayton Museum. After fresh paint,
varnish and a lot of polishing at our shop this fall,
we will be hauling Scotty back to Clayton for display in the Gold Cup
Building in their Quest For Speed
exhibit. This exhibition showcases the
history of boat racing, from the outstanding 1910 Gold Cup and Harmsworth Trophy
winner, Dixie II, to record setting Gold Cup fast steppers and hydroplanes
Packard, Liberty, Alison, and Rolls Royce airplane engines. The history of
power boat racing is presented with historic videos on multimedia kiosks.
The boats are well polished and are absolutely stunning with special
lighting, especially Juno suspended in
mid air - our personal favorite !!!
