Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
I'd like to write about another famous unlimited hydroplane raceboat....
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
Miss Supertest was Canada's greatest raceboat; and Bob Hayward, Canada's greatest raceboat driver. It was a 'marriage made in heaven', only ruined when Bob Hayward was unfortunately killed in the 1961 Silver Cup race on the Detroit River. We will never see Canada dominate world speedboat racing as she did in the 1959-1961 era with Miss Supertest III.
