Form Kirk Pagel, Unlimited News Journal:

Boeing has leased the U-16 back up hull and repainted her in three shades of blue to match the new 787 Dreamliner, recently rolled out at Boeing's Everett Plant.

The U-787 will make it's first appearance in the Seafair Torchlight Parade on July 28th in Seattle, then it will be on display August 2nd at the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum in Kent, for their annual Gala Banquet & Auction.

Look for the U-787 to be on display at the Stan Sayres pits, and perhaps make a parade lap or two prior to Sunday's Seafair race.
