Hydroplane On The Lake

Sometimes on a calm night you can hear him coming. The little boat starts up in a cove down the lake from our place. The sound gradually increases until it is quite loud and you know he is about to come into view. Sure enough, here he comes, “Speedy” as I like to call him, or “the guy in the hydroplane” as we often call him.

I don’t know who he is, but he’s been coming by with some regularity for the past few years. His little racing boat has changed, I think he has upgraded the motor and this year it looks like he’s upgraded the boat too, it looks bigger and it’s a different color from last year. But one thing is certain, the little boat can go !!!

Here’s a little clip I managed to capture this week.
