On June 26, 1950, in Lake Washington, the hydroplane Slo-mo-shun IV, piloted by Stan Sayres (1896-1956), shatters the world speed record on water. His speed of 160.3235 mph betters the previous record of 141 mph set in 1939 in England. The run on Lake Washington completed about 7:10 a.m., so early that few people witness the event. Slo Mo Shun was built by Seattle Chrysler dealer Stanley Sayres, designed by Ted Jones, measured 28-1/2 feet, sporting an Allison aircraft engine again hit 178.49mph in 1952, a further 18mpl increase. The piston-engined Slo-Mo-Shun enabling her to run over 160 mph and hull design lifting the top of the propellers out of water when running at high speed. The Slo-mo-shun IV is now displayed in Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum in Kent after restoration.
