Iconic hydroplane makes a big move

Larry Nelsen, left, owner of Hansen Brothers Moving, steadies the hydroplane Slo-Mo-Shun IV as it is removed from the Museum of History and Industry's Montlake location, Tuesday, April 3, 2012 in Seattle. The 4,500-pound Seattle icon is being moved to the Naval Reserve Building at Lake Union Park, the new home of MOHI. Slo-Mo-Shun IV is an all wood and metal boat that set a world's speed record of more than 160 MPH on Lake Washington and in 1951 won the Gold Cup Race.
