    Will do.
    Have seen a couple smaller ones but the vee got my attention.
    Again, been a while and details are fuzzy.
    I'd rather be competitive w/junk I built in my garage than win w/stuff I bought.


    I refuse to allow common sense to interfere w/my boat buying decisions.

    Did your dad mostly sell boats just to support his racing program or was he trying to do the production/retail thing??
    Ever seen any literature/brochures??

    Guess I thought you were old enough to have been involved, as a kid. You know, sweeping shop floors etc 

    Thanks for sharing Parker.

    I would love seeing anything you have, showing what models were offered/sold.
    gary , he built about 6 or7 boats acyear from 17 to 42 feet at one time , just about every house on st pete beach had a rabco behind it....there are still about 20 lefr or so, i have a 20 rabco and a 35, mostly in the 80s , greg has all the info your asking abou and will be posted soon......we got a ton of stuff to post still , lotsof rabco stuff

    kinda a sad deal. everybody wanted a 28 with tripples like my dad did , he tried to sell them with singles , and he made them center consoles. everybody liked the side consoles that ive talked to...

    I love that 20, Parker. That's the perfect Bay area sandbar boat.
