Speedboat converted into pool table as memorial

A 21ft speedboat has been converted into a pool table at a cost of £40,000… as a memorial to a dead waterskier.

Peter McKee, of Master Billiards in Australia was commissioned to make the table in memory of waterskier Brian Rix who died in 1999.

McKee says the job was incredibly difficult because he had to cut the slate to match the curve of the boat.

There was also the little matter of where to put the pockets, in the end he went with seven, six in a traditional pattern and then an extra at the end of the table.

This should make it easier for even bad players to sink the balls… which we guess is a particularly appropriate term.
