appears to be a really really mild manner boat. . .

She's been my dream motorboat ever since I first saw her picture in an early WB. Thanks for posting the video.

I would dream of a replica with a 300hp diesel in place of the original Hispano-Suiza.

No way you could accuse THAT boat of being homely!

Reminds me of a series of boats a friend built in the late '90s early 2000s. I believe he called them Gold Cup 25s. I couldn't find any video of them but there is a picture of one at the bottom of his photo page at Clarion Boats. Brings back memories of some fast trips on the Trent.Good times.

Beautiful, and I love how she turns.

Kind of a one-trick pony, imo.

They are all going to be here in NH at the Vintage Race boat Regatta in Wolfboro this weekend. Greeaaaat show and Woboro is a treat. The Jersey Skiffs are mustwatch events.

In this video the Grand Prix three point hydros start at ~1:30 time marker. The ones I really like are the stepped hull hydros. Thanks to info from Danitaga I have plans to modify and plan to build an 18 to 21 footer to run my Jaguar 4.2 XK marine conversion engine in.

Jersey Skiffs start at 4:10. Closeups of the boats are at ~ 6:00. THe music sounds like Leo Kotke, who does a gig here every summer in Gilford.

unlimited vintage in race scene.


one of my favorites, this is what I what to build as a bit smaller with the Jag engine.

If I were closer I'd be meeting you at the show Chase.

I like this quite a bit.

It must be wonderful to be wealthy and able to afford such beautiful toys.

I was impressed with Baby Bootlegger cutting across the chase boat's wake - smooth as could be!
