Billings Slo-mo-shun IV
When three men met in early 1949 at a Seattle sailboat shop, none of them could have foreseen the peculiar and far-reaching consequences of their joint venture to build a better race boat. Slo-mo-shun IV was indeed better than any previous race boat. But she was more than that: Slo-mo IV touched the hearts of thousands who cheered her on and changed forever the way generations of Seattleites feel about the first week in August.Slo-mo IV transformed the lives of those most closely associated with her, nearly destroying some of them. She evoked thrills and anger and, ultimately, she prompted tears and inspired poetry.
The photo shows a finished model, please note this model is in kit form and that glues, paints, tools and other equipment will be required by the builder to finish the model as a static model boat or radio control version.
