Here are some pics of the specific boat I am inquiring about. Almost looks like a powerplay hull. Look to have #2 speedmasters and 600 dual ram tabs. Also a three man center steer set up. Anyone??? Any pics of one of these racing in 1981?

Check the Donzi registry website. Bill Elswick may have had made these hulls. That looks like an old race boat. Where is it?

Performer was a co. that Bill Elswick here in So. Fl. created in the late 70's believe it was a 36' that he raced.
He then raced the black 39 Cigarette called Long Shot.

Thanks Lucky Strike,

Did Bill pop this mold from an existing, like a Cary? I would like to know what length the race boat pictured above is. From the hull # maybe 10m means 10 meters?

That is a Cobra Hull, You will see on some pic's where it says "Cobra by Performer" on the side of the boat. Yes the same hull Powerplay used for thier 33's. Since it was built by Performer they put thier vin # on it.

10 meter is 33'.

The 36 Performer could have been a 40' Cigarette cut down.
