    I found an old pic of my 1974 16ft Sidewinder

    This pic is from the early 90's when I was in a little better shape. I had this 1974 16ft Sidewinder that I repainted and restored. Man, I loved that boat! Ran 68 with a 2.5 150 Magnum Mariner. Yes, pink neon was in back then!

    Hey Magnum P.I. , I would have left that one in the scrap book.... Oh boy where do I start? lol Don Johnson... HHAAAAAAAA Where's Stub's?
    PS. Pink neon was OUT by the '90,s..... It was IN around the early to mid '80,s but I understand if you were a lil slow to catch on.

    That is the CLASSIC Tom Selleck look...

    Like the boat though.... at least what I can see through the tears in my eyes

    And the shorts too sorry Randy I couldn't resist for some reason it was a common color back in the day, they put it on boats, jet skis, dirt bikes, sportbikes, quads. I'm glad that era didn't last very long. Not bustin on your boat Randy just your attire and the Magnum mustache I wish I had some of your talent

    A little better shape? Plus takes a REAL MAN to wear a pink visor. Ah the joys of getting younger lol. Wish I could find some picts of my old Cheetah hull. Great looking boat Randy.

    I've had the same moustache since I was 18. I still have it now. Never have seen my upper lip since 1972!
