Is this the boat I saw at Ted's in Boynton Beach a while back? It looks great.a real classic.

Great looks really good. About 3 Rumbles ago there was a yellow and white one with twin 110s on it. Could that be the same one? Rick

I can neither confirm nor deny that this was the boat at Ted's :rolleyes:. I also do not think that this one was the yellow one. When it was acquired it had some sort of bracket and a single on it. El Hefe (the boss), has something for the Mag's as they have quite a bit of history 'tween each other.

If anyone has tips on how to resize the pics or do them in thumbnails, feel free to help me. "You see the thing is, Mister Coach Kline, Bobby(Greg) don't exactly have what you call social(computer) skills."

That is the one you are thinking of Rick and he still has it.
Awesome boat.
Whitey tried to get me a ride (at the Rumble) in it and I could'nt sneak away long enough to do it.
I watched him though and thought how cool that "old antique" was.
Until he launched it!!
Twin 2 blade brass wheels and all.
The thing was a freagin rocket out of the hole and flew too!
The sound of the twin old in lines was something else too.
Very cool!

'62 100's. I have driven this boat to the mid 50's. After it is propped correctly we might see 60. Very interesting ride. Feels nothing like a mono. Greg
