Three Wooden Boats Racing Together

This photograph of three wooden speedboats was taken during a day of filming them running together at high speed.  The driving was technical because we wanted the antique boats to be fairly close together and evenly spaced.  It took several runs of practice but this photo, taken from a chase boat, gave us what we were after.  All three boats are triple-cockpit runabouts made by Chris-Craft, Gar Wood and Hacker-Craft.  The photo shoot took place on the St. Clair Flats section of Lake St. Clair in Michigan.
