Default 30' Activator Super V Light / Poker Run Edition

This thread will be a complete build of a new 30' Activator / Race Poker Race Edition
It will comprise of the complete ground up manufacturing process, from layup, to rigging, and the final testing of both engine packages.
The Team:
Owner: Ed L.
Manufacturer: Activator Power Boats
Mark Schneff
Richard Stroffolino
The start date of the project was December 15, 2015, with a completion date of February 15, 2016
at which point the boat will go into rigging with both engine options:
poker run engine and a SBI legal race engine
as the build and rigging progresses we will provide pictures of the project with engine specifications for each application and test results....

The owner would like to thank Mark and Rich of Activator Powerboats for their total cooperation, professionalism, and attention to detail in making this project a reality.......

Here is a rendition of what the Activator will look like....... although this pencil drawing does no justice to what the finished product will look like, its a peek of the concept of the boat in production....

I thought Mange bought the Activator name and the US built boats were Rage?

the concept for this build is to have a Poker Run boat one weekend and a Raceboat on another weekend, the rigging will be such that the engines will be able to be swapped out within hours,

completed in 2016****. Very excited to Mark and Rich up at Northeast complete another 30 SVL. As a partner on the first one I can say I cannot wait to join Ed in the poker runs and on the race course. Activator/Rage is and has always been a great showpiece of marksmanship and craftsmanship under Mark schneff. Although winter hasn't set it hopefully it won't. Summer 2016 can't come soon enough.
