Biography of legendary New Zealander 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.
Fantastic book on NZ pioneering history.
Increasingly hard to find in this condition and especially with Irishman Creek souvenir.
