About

Full title:  WILD IRISHMAN: The story of Bill Hamilton, New Zealand Farmer, Inventor, Engineer and Jet Boat Pioneer.

Biography of Bill (C.W.F.) Hamilton.
His talent for invention and love of boats developed at an early age and he grew up to be a high country farmer, racing driver, engineer, and - almost by accident - the first man to make the jet-propulsion of watercraft a practicality. Today his patented jet propulsion invention that still bares his name is synonymous within the international marine industry.

Illustrated throughout with b&w photos.

Includes Irishman Creek souvenir visitors program

Fantastic book on NZ pioneering history and increasingly hard to find in this condition.
