Boy is this a blast from the past! I haven't seen hydroplane races since the early 1960s or maybe it was the late 50s. My Dad was a fan and I remember him taking me to see a race, but I don't think it was on the Merrimack. I'll have to see if my mother or the brother closest to me in age remember where it was. Anyway, apparently hydroplane racing is back and it's happening in Haverhill this weekend.
