    Boats That Have Been Copied...

    Here's one. Copied more than once. The 15 HydroStream Viper. Copied almost exactly, by Skeeter Odyessy back when.

    Sidewinders have to be the most copied.

    the 380 Laser was copied quite a bit back in the early/mid 80s, the LTV also.

    My boat is a copy of a Lake and Bay. Not an exact copy but the entire running surface is a L&B Boca pocket hull. The top cap is different though

    One of many lake and bottom copies made...I heard the l&b bottom came from a 20' Sutphen. Jean (orig owner l&b) and Ritchie S. I believe knew each other when racing small boats.

    Interesting. Not much info on my boat. Radiant Marine which became OOSI a year after my boat was built. I always thought the 21 Action bottom was similar. That 20 Sutphen might've started it all. There are a lot of L&b copies around, I got lucky as I couldn't afford an actual Lake and Bay.

    I know little about Lake & Bay Boats, but understand they have a following of sorts these days. Back in about 1982/1983, I went to south miami "somewhere", can't remember where, to the warehouse that Lake & Bays were being made. Was not impressed with their mold work at the time, I remember that. And do remember it was a hull splash. Everything was a splash back then. That style of boat, flats, bonefishing, boats like them...were starting to really take off in popularity, because of the new V-6 outboards that were available.

    The 27' Magnum hull has been copied, a couple hundred times... Too numerous to count.
