Water Glider Floats on Rollers (Jul, 1932)

Water Glider Floats on Rollers

POWERED by a 9 horsepower motor, the novel water glider shown in the photo below attained a speed of 140 kilometers an hour in a recent test at Suresnes, near Paris. The boat is buoyed on three barrel-shaped floats which revolve when craft is in motion. Propeller attachment mounted in front of boat adds to the pulling power of the motor.

    There’s no way that thing could go that fast!

    July of 1932 would have been the time Kaye Don was setting records on Loch Lomand with Miss England III. I’m thinking someone got confused?
