A journal of the history of the '60s Batman Batboat, how I came to buy a replica and my hopeful adventures in repairing and making it a functional Anti-Crime cruiser.

Vintage photo of my boat.
I found this pix in a flicker account while Googling.
Its of the Batboat before I owned it on display at the Motor City Comic Convention, held at the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi, MI, May 19-21, 2006. The miniature Man-O-War was built for this convention celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Batman TV show.
I understand the autograph tables of Adam West, Burt Ward, Julie Newmar, Yvonne Craig, and Lee Meriweather were facing the Batboat the entire weekend but I have yet to find any photos showing it.
It will be cool to put together a scrapbook. Most images that have been given to me and found were shot at this convention.
I'd like to have some other shots taken at other meets and conventions where this appeared from 2006 to 2007, like the one at the bottom of this blog.
Have you any photos of my Batboat on display? Or with cast members? There are two shots of Yvonne Craig autographing the fin.
I'd sure like to have some more. :) Contact me through this blog or firstname.lastname@example.org.
