When the Chris-Craft Racing Hydroplane was first delivered, it was accompanied with a warning: 'FOR RACING ONLY.' Equipped with a high-performance 121 horsepower KB engine, its three in-line carburetors protruded above the deck. The streamlined red fairing, designed to shield the carburetors, came to symbolize one of the fastest and most desirable Chris-Craft boats of the pre-war years.
