The U-787 was on display at the Hydroplane Museum last night, for their annual Gala Banquet and Auction. All those in attendance recieved a 1/64 th scale model of the hydroplane.

Over $50,000 was raised in the live auction, and thousands more after the silent auction was added to the total. One of the items auctioned was a Blue & Black leather "Bomber" jacket with the U-787 picture & logo emblazened on the front & back.

Bill Boeing Jr. and Sven Ellstrom were seen discussing the possibility of running the boat prior to racing on Sunday 8/5 in an exhibition lap or two.
