Yo......I had the same boat (my first, I was 17), but mine was yellow. When i bought it had the name "Patricia Ann" on the back of it........So my friends and I unformally named it the "Fatty Patty". .....I put a mild 350 in it, and it ran around 40mph.
The fun part about that boat was it was held together by Duct tape and old cell phones....And i didn't give a chit if my buddies spilled beer, dropped ashes, or pissed in it for all i cared!! That made it somewhat enjoyable. Now it's like i follow my friends around with simple green and a rag
