My straight bottom F2 has a Cover Girl cabin only (No V-berth) and it's built very light. That's as much as Phil said he would do. He mentioned how well balanced the boat was and said he wouldn't want to ruin that. I'm sure that's the case with the rest of the F2 boats as well.

It is cool owning a former race boat. Typically get a lot of questions about it and they are definitely dialed in better than the majority of production boats but there are trade-offs. As was said earlier, they are worth what the buyer or seller feel they are worth. If the two parties reach an agreement - SOLD!

Well, I don't know if there are any downsides other than the cabin, which to us was not a downside . Our boat did not have an electric engine hatch. The only one that does is Speed Racer. That boat is definatley the closest to a pleasure boat. It has a full bench seat (as does Maxx) and the port side has all the gauges like a regular T/S does. Maxx has a few on the port side but it does not have the standard gauge set-up. I believe MAXX is still a bare bones cabin (you'd have to check with boomer though). However, one of the previous owners of Speed Racer, (JBK) painted the cabin white and put down some lonseal flooring. Here are the cabins in the 3 boats. First one is the Lip-Ship, 2nd is MAXX (as it was when we looked at it a few years ago) and third is of Speed Racer.
Old thread, Im bored.....winter sucks...............LOL......Speed Racer has twin aluminum 75 gal. tanks

Your red vinyl bulkhead cover is upside down. I made it to go the other way. It should fit a bit tighter then.
