    Yes I do. Weird, I was going to mention that yesterday, did;nt know if you knew or remembered that story. I am not sure if it was a convienience store or a very older small Mercury Dealer that just repaired old small outboards now, or am I mixing one story with another. Said it was on the side of the building and didn't wanto talk about it, or something like that.

    ...Yes, I do. He went by "NORTHERNOFFSHORE" on OffshoreOnly. He lives in Ft. Myers. The date of the OSO post was 12-17-2007. Said there was a sportdeck BLACK 28 Rabco, rigged with triple 200's on the chain of lakes in Illinois. It was the thread you posted titled: Where is Black Max (28 Rabco)???

    I've always refered to a full forward deck sportboat/offshore, as a sportdeck...versus a CC. The two separate side console boats of that era, built by any offshore boat company in Florida, was much less common than CC, or a Sportdeck. Most builders back then refered to them as they're Sportdeck version. Yeah, the regular carbureted 200 Mercury was by far the most popular multi-outboard power of choice for decades in Florida on offshore pleasure & race boats, bar none.

    I have a ton more! Dad just passed this weekend, so a ton of **** to deal with. But, i will absolutely post everything I can find. I wore that same Blue Run River Rat t-shirt for years. That pic was definitely on Rainbow river. We were just a couple doors down from you guys there. I was there the night your dad's hustler sank.

    That boat was so badass. Freakin Hustler with a big ole V6 Black max. I was just in awe every time i saw that thing, and then you guys would cruise the river in that massive CC with trips or quads, I honestly don't even remember except that it was huge and fast
