I was fortunate enough to go to the preview of this movie this spring for members of the Hydroplane and Raceboat museum.
It was increadible to watch that movie in a sold-out 500+ person theater full of people passionate about the subject, as well as many team members and luminaries from the hey-day of the sport. If anyone ever visits the Seattle area, I can't recommend the museum enough...when is someone going to do the same thing for Offshore?
Also, if you make it up before January '06, you can check out the exhibit BOATS THAT FLY at the Museum of Flight.
I actually ended up seeing the movie twice before it left the Theater around here, it's a little over simplistic, but still a lot of fun. I will be buying it soon...
