This is not a Police contact #)

The owner of these Hydroplanes, Kirk, has been racing R/C
Scale Hydroplanes for more than 18 years and would help anyone that asked him. He is currently a board member of one, and
participant in both of the large, Northwest 1/8th scale R/C clubs. Additionally,
he is connected to the Hydroplane And Raceboat Museum in Kent (HARM). Our NAMBA affiliation guarantees that this
flier will be distributed NATIONWIDE and THROUGHOUT CANADA. There are tens of thousands of people that
this flier will be distributed to electronically. And from there, it will be shared with
friends of those friends. These boats will never see the water in
the United States or Canada, never be pawned, never be sold, without someone
being arrested and charged!!!
The best option right now is for the thieves to return these boats
anonymously, and collect this reward.
Soon, this reward will be retracted, and full charges will be
pursued. The thieves do not have the
motors, the radio gear, or any other components to make these boats
functional… RETURN THESE BOATS TODAY, by setting them beside the house you
took them from, and then make contact as shown above. By any method, leave contact information, and
the reward will be paid with no questions asked,
but only for a few days after this flier is distributed… Additionally, know, many of Kirks friends
will be going door to door soon, to inform the local community with this
information, and searching for these Hydroplanes!

Roger Newton Interview Part 1

Recently cleaning out the cubboards of the Newton Marine shop, I found a copy of an interview Unlimiteds Newsjournal did on my father, Roger Newton. It was so exciting to find this and re-read through the interterview! Hydroplanes had such a large impact in my father's life and this interview replayed some of the key moments of their relationship. Now without further ado, here is part 1 of 2 of Unlimiteds Newsjournal's interview of the Czar!
