Mike Hansen

The HomeStreet Bank hydroplane that snagged a few wins at Hydrofest is run under a crew chief by the name of Michael “Mike” Hansen, who’s got quite an extensive and notable history with racing.

Fellow crew member Jimmy Gilbert of Houston started racing in 1991. In his time with the team, he had nothing but praise for Hansen, saying “Mike is truly the best! Not only can he build the boat, but he knows how to operate it just as well.” He’s also known among the team as “The Boat Doctor.”
