    Exclamation spent 100 hrs. search time, pls. help!

    i bought an 1988 27 elininator daytona in new york and i'm thinking of restoring it to its origional glory. ken, the guy i bought it from tells me that the hull was team eliminators race boat at one time. i can verify this by slight varyations in the gell coat where the team eliminator graphics were. (also the #7) . the hull was built in the now defunked wisconsion plant. ken, also tells me that under the flooring i will find stringer mounts for a third moter. this boat has front bolsters that are in the center of the boat, side by side. i am looking for any info i can get my hands on about this boat. the gell is white w/7 color reds . the radar arch still says team eliminator anyone having archives or knowing where to find them would be greatly apprecated!

    I've got a 1997 of that same hull, California built. It is a good allround hull. Merlin540 had one of these that he had into the 120's or something that insane. I hate to caution you but you may want to investigate the structual integrity of the hull. Some of the boats produced there were very light weight a had a problem delaminating. Be safe. I put about 1300hp. in last year and am very happy with the results. My hull is very heavy. Really a modified "V" Good luck with your project. Eric

    Talk to the people that made it. Brandi Leach is a member here. Her OSO name is BLeach. Even though it was built in Wis.,if it was raced, her dad may know about it.
    Send BLeach a PM.

    good luck with the boat.
