Mr. Williams is the current Director at the Hydroplane & Raceboat Museum, and his primary role will be too ensure that the project is completed on schedule and within budget.
Dave has overseen many hydroplane restorations, most recently with the 1973 Pay 'N Pak and 1980 Atlas Van Lines projects.
Dave also acts as the driver for some of the restored hulls in the museum's fleet, notably the 1980 Miss Budweiser.
Mr. Ramsey brings years of hydroplane experience to the project, serving as a crew member on such classic teams as the Atlas Van Lines and Miss Budweiser programs.
Tim will oversee and direct all of the restoration work to maintain the highest quality standards and accuracy to the project.
Tim will assume the "Crew Chief" role throughout the restoration, as well as when the hull is completed for exhibition.

Mr.Laws and his family are the pioneers in spearheading the restoration up to this point.
Gary will handle the history, promotion and marketing aspects of the project, such as maintaining this website by adding content and updates on the project as it progresses.
When Mr. Laws and his family bought the hull in 2013, it was always with the intention of restoring it back into it's original 1979 The Squire Shop configuration.
Gary is a CNC machine operator by trade, with over 23 years experience at The Boeing Company.
Mr. Clark is a reliable and consistent volunteer on the team, who is always willing to help where needed.
Mr. Minor has been involved with hydroplanes for years, often lending his build talents to other museum projects along the way.

Mr. Knowlen has been employed at Boeing for most of his professional career, primarily as an engineer and in various management positions.
Dave will act as a consultant for the team as the restoration progresses.
Mr. Whitestine is the current 1980 Miss Budweiser "Crew Chief" at the hydroplane & Raceboat Museum.
Gale came onto the Squire Shop project about mid way through through the restoration, and his knowledge and expertise are invaluable.
Mr. Whitestine previously was a key crew member of the former U-48 Lakeridge Paving boat owned by Greg O'Farrell.
Ed "Papa" Glenn's history with hydroplane racing goes all the way back to the early inaugural Miss Budweiser team, where he was an original crew member.
Mr. Glenn was also a crew member on the U-11 Miss Michelob team for its only race at Seafair in 1964.
Ed always has a story to tell about the "good ol' days" and often lends a hand whenever help is needed.
Mr. Compton is a valuable assett and team member to the restoration project. Steve is also a co-owner of the 1955 "Miss Thriftway" replica hydroplane.
Steve has a wealth of experience to the project, and is a former R/C modeler as well.
Mr. Compton even tracked down and acquired the Merlin engine we will use on the project.
Bryan is new to the sport of hydroplane racing, but expressed his desire to help out on the project.
Mr. Zimbelman was friends with both Tim Ramsay and Gary Laws long before this project even got started.
Bryan is a CNC machine maintenance technician by trade.
Mr. Haskin is no stranger to the hydroplane community. Brad is a former crew member on numerous teams over the years, including the U-8 Llumar, u-25 Miss Freei, and U-37 Miss Beacon Plumbing hydroplane teams.

John is one of the original builders of both 1979 Norberg hulls, The Squire Shop and Circus Circus.
Mr. Watkins is heading up re-lofting the drawings so we can do a 100% accurate restoration.
John brings a wealth of skill and experience to the project, and we are very fortunate to have him on the team. Without his involvement, none of this may have been possible.
