Peter; Are you related to Bob Hackett? A real gentleman I may add. I have a Schroeder 266, F-23. I have a picture of the exact boat & trailer taken from about 7' in the air and the writing on the deck near the cockpit in my picture says
"Schroeder-Crosley", the picture was given to me by Gene Fleming. Inasmuch as the name cannot be read in the picture, I guess we have a mystery.
mike we uncovered the schroeder name on bobs boat on the stuffing box under the fuel cell apon removal the other day, did POPs maybe fab these or is it someone else. the part seams to be alot older than the hull it self, the hull is 1980 can you send me that pic you have email [email protected] thats what it is for now untill timewarner takes controll thanks pete hackett. HACKETT Racing ( NM/6ltr and Y/T )hydroplanes as of now...
If I knew that I would know what boat it was?! I can't make it out. I know Henry didn't build to many T or Y boats. Dick Delsener might know? Could this be the original "Lip Ship"? Or is it even a Lauterbach?

Someone should just call the guy and get the scoop! With a little more info on the boat someone on this site would probably buy it. More so than the boat trader where it is now.

Lauterbach? For Sale- CHEAP
August 8 2006, 2:58 PM
Judging by the sides, sponsons and angle of the steering wheel I am fairly sure this is not a Lauterbach. I would guess a Lloyd or home built. It does not look familiar to me.

If it was in the Great Northwest I would be all over it no matter who built it! Is that stupid of me? Just getting started, Lon

If we called the owner then we'd miss out on all this speculation.
In looking closely at the picture it looks like the crosley is mounted crosswise, or like a front wheel drive car. If it had been at a race such as St Pete I'm sure someone would have noticed and remebered it. Strange enough that you wouldn't forget.
The Reiss' old "Sure Bet"?
Rick Albrecht's old "Miss T"?
What do you think?

Mike, it looks like the colors of Reiss's Sure Bet but didn't that boat get made into a picklefork and became T-59 Scraps. What about the old Teenta Too/Jersey Lightning was a blide hull I think or The longs old Littlest Lou or T-88 The Hastler????

definitely not Lauterbach
August 10 2006, 7:50 AM
After talking with Butch Kropfeld and Mike "Lippy" Lipshutz over the weekend, I can tell you that this boat is definitely not one of the Lip Ship boats and is definitely not a Lauterbach.

If I can help....

...being that I live in Miami, where the boat is located. I`m willing to go see the boat and provide any info feed back that I can. I do have a digital camera, and you can reach me on my cell @ 954-658-6935. Also, and a much, much, much, better resource if available, Skip Gillam I believe still lives in the Miami area.

I wonder if Steve Jones would know about this boat? Might have even driven it.
