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.

My boat in a 2006 Canadian TV show.
My Batboat was built in 2006 for the Novi, MI Comic convention marking the 40th anniversary of the first airing of the Batman TV series in 1966.
A production crew was also there shooting footage for a TV show titled "Fanatical." This would be the first episode and it centered around two people who are really into Batman stuff. One of the guys is Scott Sebring who is also one of the people that run the 1966 Batman forum.
He was dressed as Batman at the 2006 Novi convention and much to my surprise he was filmed along side what was to become my Batboat.
The vessel is mostly seen in the last 1/2 of the episode. A very pleasant surprise! I saw it for the first time this week and never knew this existed.
Here is Scott's blog entry accompanied by a video of the entire episode.
