You mean this boat?
I was driving down I-55 in souothern IL and saw an old "Navy SEAL" boat and a big full canopy boat for sale along the side of the highway. I wondered what the full canopy boat was and if anyone had any info on it. I drive a bit too fast to get the number off the For Sale sign.
You mean this boat?
Would those belong to "Little Jim"?
He had a rough navy seal boat with 572s and SSMs.
He also had an itialian ex-raceboat with canopy. It had one BIG step and ran 3 diesels.
You got a location? Is it near a big ferris wheel?
I can't see the pic since I'm too lazy to sign up.
Yes, it's "Little Jim's". Just South of Springfield at the non-infamous Punkies Palace. I don't have contact info though...
Dredgeking - Send me an email and I'll forward the pic. It's low quality cell phone though.

Sounds like the boats. Any info on the Italian racer?
The italian racer was set up for seatec diesels, I think. And strait shaft drives out the transom.
It's completely stripped. It' a heavy boat and I'm sure what would effectively power it or how well the strait shaft, non-trimmable drives would work.
One interesting point, the diesel exhaust is vented out the step underneath the boat.
I was under the impression that boat was old to "Big Iron" Steve at LOTO.
My contact info for Jim is old, so I wont post it here.
The big boat looks like Harry Schol's Infinity, it was raced a few times as Varn's Infinity.........
