We're located in northern Illinois, on the great Chain O' Lakes.Originally Posted by Pantera24
About 5 years ago, when I was buying my Bravo HP gimble from Re-Pro Power, I talked to a guy named John Bauer. He said he and his brother originally built the Martinis and the name changed to Corsa and they sold the business, or something like that. He said there was a dealership up in Chicago. I know of about 3 or 4 other '79, '80 Martinis in this area. The ones I've seen are in pretty decent shape. I just recently saw one on ebay from around here that had twin small blocks in it, but it looked a little rough.
I would do things differently if I were to do another restoration. I would start with the bottom and take out the hook. The boat just sticks in the water. This weekend we had 5 adults and were still able to run 74MPH. But that hook is robbing horsepower.
