There is a 41' Stinger all red w/ black trim on Lake Hartwell SC. I have talked w/ the owner a few times, he said it is a 92 euro edition, might have said Fitapaldi. The most unique thing was it had no windshield just a small flip up plexiglass section for the driver. It also has a significant raised section molded into the hull where the windshield would be, kind'a like a Baja. The whole design resembled an 89 Pachanga.

I have an 87 Stinger (at least that what the ownership says?) but there is a red "SCORPION" sticker on both sides of the boat???
It is a 260 series boat and has the four hatches, two per side, for the cuddy with a single roof hatch.

What is the definitive difference between a Scorpion and a Stinger?

On another note I saw a guy pull into Port Dalhousie a few days ago with a 230. He definitely had a big block in it as I have a good ear. I don't know if that was dealer installed or done by the owner? We never had a chance to chat...
Did the later 230's ever come with a BB and thru-hull stainless?

I have a 1981 21' Scorpion with a 350 that has been on a trailer in storage for two yrs that I cannot use. Probably need to get rid of it as I only have one lift. Anyone interested, I can provide you with the details.
