    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.

    Just finished polishing boat and it’s all gel. Nice to see no paint. Found Arizona numbers faded on the sponsons. Guess it was registered there at some point. Maybe California was the wrong story.

    Just got off the phone today with Greg foster he confirmed that this was his boat. He owned it for 4-5 years. Greg told me this is a custom boat Roark built for him. All custom gel. Greg said this is the only one in existence. He was surprised when I sent him the picture. Said it still looked in good shape. Guess that’s what being cover and in a garage does. He’s a real nice guy and answered all my questions.
