pdf epub fb2 djvu



Experience the heyday of speedboats-an era when speed was still a novel plaything of the wealthy, and boats were raced as passionately as Duesenbergs and Bugattis. Powered by monstrous inboard engines-the fruits of wartime technology-these luxurious specimens and their intrepid pilots competed fiercely with rivals around the world. Relish in meticulous cutaway drawings, archival photography and opulent color shots of impeccably restored mahogany torpedoes cleaving the waves today, just as they did in years past. 10 X 10, 192 pgs., 200 b/w and 114 color photos.'
