Last updated 2 years ago

"The Automotive Collision Repair students at South Seattle Community College joined with legendary hydroplane driver Billy Schumacher, the new sponsor Beacon Plumbing and owner Tom Cahill and SSCC President Gary Oertli to unveil the brand new look for the hydroplane, set to race at Seafair this August.

During the ceremony instructors Steve Ford, Doug Clapper, Howard Andersen, and Eric Smock were recognized.

President Oertli recalled memories of his youth in West Seattle and how he would bring sandwiches to Seafair every year. He recounted meeting Seafair and hydroplane legend Bill Muncey and had his photo taken with him."
