Great looking project...Looks like you found the earlier version of the Bat Boat with the extra seat for Bat Girl and the Cat Woman.

Keep the pictures coming.

Hi , this has been a steady charge but it is now has a very strong new transom with a well like it had,Transom is 6in wider to accomadate the 135hp merc with power trim,the whole boat has been wrapped with light cloth, and the bottom has a layer of 1.5 mat,the tunnel has been beefed up and the step has been redone,extra support at front where trailer comes in, New custom made 17 gal aluminium tank mounted under deck,new rear deck replaces,The deck is now in primer and ready to be sprayed,we rolled it over then and did the bottom,it will get a cream fins and stinger to match the side piece.I just had some pieces made for the trailer and will sit on the flat and guide on the tunnel,it will be a bigger tee nee trailer,Still another 2 days from rolling over to do deck but were are gaining Bill

Hmm - If George Jetson had a boat and had a planet with a lake, he would have his eye on this one! This will be quite something when complete! Nice work.

Outrageous! What a change from the first time it was talked about, sitting on that ol' trailer looking like a burn pile. You've saved another Bill.
Going to look downright evil.

Sure want to see this one in person so I can see every crazy well thought angle. There sure have been a lot of creative minds designing cars and boats through the years. Modern safety requirements and production efforts have taken a toll on anything standing alone artistically next to its competition. This boat DOES look like it could 'fly' just sitting still.

Very nice restoration and what great style. If a person loves fins, then this is it. I should have noticed you might have a sleeper motor... took second look to notice the chrome horn was missing off the top hat. The fins kept me distracted, but in a good way. Would love to see that one in person before it finds another home. Nice job, Bill!
