    I wonder when and if they would pack air and lift. With that much area under it once it lifted whoa baby!
    I am just pointing some things that I see there. The sponsons are pretty flat. That is going to make a really fast boat, the problem is that any chop at all and it will be all over the place.

    The tunnel is shallow so it should pack a lot of air once it is at speed, but who knows at what speed. I would guess htat there is power trim back there to help with handling.

    I would bet also that new prop technology might make those things more user friendly.

    Great find. If they give them away cheap, I might be interested in one for the collection.

    They did?....... When?

    IF...... they were "raced"...I never saw them...and I've seen a few races.

    Very low dihedral...the term "IMPAC" probably refers to the shots your back takes in choppy water......

    Frankly they look like crap.

    Obsolete and proud of it
