    Dennis, With the popularity of antique boat shows and old race boats, Iím sure someone might be interested in your Baja tunnel. With the slotted deck, it was a unique boat. Is it in ĎPepsií colors? Maybe post some pics!

    Don't burn it! That's a really good find these days, it can always be fixed. I remember when there was a bunch of those around, Rick Wondra ran one in MOD 90, Chuck Kensill ran really well in SJ with one. Click image for larger version.

    am aware of vintage, curently running 4 diff. E&T Marine boats 3 tunnels 1 V bottom ,all were nat. hi pt 69/72, they are still in one piece and running well,might be tough for the baja to keep up!! baja at the moment has deck removed ,hull being strriped of rot & inside glass rag, am considering increasing transom setback about 4"!!

    Yeah, F5 might be a good fit.
    That brochure says 750 on the first page, that the weight or different boat?

    I just saw John Tiger's post from 5 years ago. I wonder if that Baja did go to someone that used it at vintage events?
