    Anyone recognize this stv

    Looking for some history on my stv. I think it came from California. The trailer plate was from there. The trailer is all custom solid bottom and carpeted. The boat has a paint scheme I haven't see. Is this original. Any info on the hull would be great. It is a 1996. Don't know the layup. Thanks.

    As far as I know all Summerford boats were gel, so I doubt it’s original.

    Thats a pretty “California” paint job - not Tennessee lol

    It is an original Roark STV, forgot who it was built for in California. They also have an STV Vee bottom (SRV) too. Famous racer. It made its way to Canada many years ago.

    Talked to Ted today. He didn't recognize the boat. But was very informative and I will be using him in the future for work. Thanks for the tip.

    Can you take a picture of the bottom from the front end? I'd like to see it.
    If I don't ask any questions, I'll never learn anything.
