My Peace Boat

"My Peace" is a 1961 Sanger Ski Hydro. It is one of seven original prototype hydros built by Jack Davidson (Sanger Boats), and a sister boat to White Mist. It was originally sold in Paso Robles, CA, with a Cadillac engine and pearl white color. The second owner was Jerry Wildman, whose father owned the local Cadillac dealership. Jerry replaced the Cad engine with an early 396 big block Chevy. For some time, he ran it with the wrong rudder on it, using a short one from a flatbottom. This would result in the boat turning sideways at 90.
