There should be some old threads on this subject with Owners and some history. I am currently an owner of the 32 SS hull that is for sale in the swap shop. After owning 4 panteras, the Scorpion can match any big water at speed.

Johnny like Bearpaw said scorpion do run in rough water. A freind of mine has a Scorpion & it has a nice ride & runs about 70. These are not made by Chris Craft but by Scorpion they where only made for afew years.Tony give me a call sometime,many upgrades to Blue Balls.
