This is like a switzer on steroids, I have a shooting star also and this is on the order,but this is bigger,its a tunnel hull and a lot bigger fins and side splash fins,it gets a big tee nee trailer and a 6 cyl merc Bill thanks again Royce
I'm with Karsten. Love all of the features...tunnel with pointed bow AND awesome wing configurations. It is already wow in unfinished form. Bill will make it out of this world Wow. Can't wait to follow this one to completion!
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
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.
actually Bryan it is not heavy built with mainly quarter in plywood with a lot of 1x2 every16 in,it is now on tee nee trailer,it will get sanded and buffed and interior is a bluish grey.it will get a tee nee tower Bill
the deck has been stripped and painted 4 times since may,,we have not been working on it,,erik is doing new boats,merc dealer,so my stuff is set back.this is 95 percent tilt steering,gauge cluster[nos], tilt,trim 135 merc,,waiting on pinstripe to go between colors,custom 17 gal tank under deck,more int pic tomorrow, bill
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!
