marmac093 - Version 2

This is the twin screw Hinckley 42 foot powerboat Marmac built in 1938, later named Victoria III. I last saw her in the 1980's in Florida. I hope she is still afloat. The name Marmac is a combination of the names of the owner's two children, Martha and Macomber, both now deceased. Martha was my mother. Becoming a boat nut starts early.
