It went about 50 mph, had a lot of torque for skiing, and was very efficient.

    Sidewinder 18' I bought one new and ran it with a 135 mercury inline 6 in the early 70's. It was a light blue one with white seats. Ran pretty good and was my step up from a Glaspar G3 with a 50 merc.

    Have to look for a picture I should have around somewhere.

    Not condoning or justifying the above remarks. Not even sure why the 1 Post poster had to say what he did.

    Recently (a few years back) someone out of Canada had been making and marketing New Sidewider boats and of the few 1st production they did indeed use a wrong foam for floatation. This ended badly with the drowning of one lady when one boat swamped and abruptly sank.

    After the courts ruled in favor of the family, many investors/future dealers filing claims and what not....Last I heard was the plant had been seized and anything worth value was being sold.

    Note....This has nothing to do with the vintage Sidewider, Schuster boats as they have nothing under the floor.

    You guys are not very observant. When I was last on the website about 4.30 I noticed his user title. Junior Member? No. Team Member? No. Freakin Screaming? No. BANNED? Yes.

    They look a lot like a Wriedt Scorpion that I had back when. They were all copies of copies of copies it seems ..........................

    Mine had a Berkeley and I still have the Ford 428 Cobra Jet that was in it Fast as hell

    The wierd part was it had no coring just a boat load of fiberglass layup, the only stringers it had were at the back for the engine, the transom was wood cored though. It was a hand full

    That's the way boats were built then, nobody wants to pay for the ultimate in coring and layup tech now anyway in a boat of this size . All our small boats are sinkers anyway so think about it ...

  13. My brother Michael and I had a 18' Super Sidewinder, Gold Metal flake, 455 ci Olds, Berkley Jet with jetOvator bought NEW from Cove Marina, Greenwood Lake NY,,,,, Actually a very pretty boat,,, but No stringers, wood 2x6 or 2x8 on edge under the engine to act as engine beds.. We sold the boat to a fellow who was running it on the Hudson River, he split the bottom on the river one day, and it sank,, His words were,, " I was racing a train along the river edge, and the bottom broke" Lol,,the bottom would flex all over the place when you were running the boat,,,
