stevedavid-thanks for the info, i too am very familiar with the signature tommy adams hull, my buddy has the molds, hull and topdeck featuring the staggered setup, 3 man bolster which was run by tommy adams
vicious- the boat IS a headturner!!!!!! i need to get a pic of the transom.......this boat has the deepest v i have ever seen!!!!!
thanks all for the input.......
hmmm, i cant tell if it s the same with the top shot in the ad....it looks like the same name.......i would need a side shot to verify that!! thanks for the research mika!!!!
Hi guys, the scorpion that bull is talking about is different from the chris craft it is not a "signature". Definitly classic lines. Built in south florida. I have heard it was an aronow design hull but could not verify the truth of that.
It was built in Miami by Julio de Verona, a racer/firefighter for several years. They are pretty good boats.
There's a yellow Competition 38 at Falcon called Ocean Commotion...used to race D class and I'm told it kicked azz...looks pretty tough to me...
I raced Hurley Stepp's old HB Scorpion with BruceK from the board. He owned it and throttled it I drove. What a great rough water boat! Too bad Bruce sold it. FUN RIDE!
Steve is right on. The chris craft scorpion was 31', the Scorpion was built in Miami by Julio Deverona. Company went defunct and the molds resurfaced under a few different titles.
I saw the mold on the side of his house in the early 90's and entertained the purchase, but they were in rough shape. I think the boat was actually a 32'. Good ride, and solid construction for the day. Fit and finish were never there ! Have it surveyed ! and check the serial # on the transom the first letters denote the manufacturer name and can be confirmed through the coast guard as they issue them.
I thought the molds came from Roberto Picons Carrera Line of boats ... Not usre where he got em .. Scorpions started popping out around 83 or so ..My old boss had a 24 ..TOUGH Boat
All I know
this is the pic that i took of the scorpion........boat looks tight!!!
