Excellent find and WAY cool. I have no info. I did build a 8 foot racing hydro in 1979 with 1/4 inch marine plywood over mahogany frame. $33 per sheet of 4x8 marine plywood back then. The Mahogany framing costs me only $25 from my high school shop class. Wonder if your boat ever got any magazine write ups like from Powerboat Magazine??

Bill, your need for speed never stops. :laugh:

I can see it now, someone with a phone camera taking a video of you taking flying lessons before you launch that baby. Two four bangers, maybe some high octane fuel and aggressive props. Pleas post your progress.

As a 1-10 difficulty to get in that cockpit, make that a 10 and add a cherry picker jib crane.

First, do no harm!
It's a lot easier to buy a boat than sell a boat.(Stole this from a member!)
All that work and hardware store mailbox letters for the hull? Tsk tsk..

Yes, it's a very cool boat...but imagine if it were made with mahogany! But wait! I have an idea. Send it to me, Bill. I'll tear it down, duplicate it piece by piece and then reassemble with 10 coats of Epiphanes and a lot of gratuitous chrome...with maybe a few slight modifications to enable me to install a blown big block V-drive.
