Lowered cockpit floor, light core built in fairing, very light but from the cockpit to the engine mounts, everything ties together. And still going.

Default Original WMMS Radio Thnuder Buzzard P100

I was the original owner of the WMMS Thunder Buzzard P100 and miss GLOPBRA like crazy. It was the 1st Innovation 24 that was built with Kevlar and unfortunately, being the 1st is not always the best since we were plagued by broken stringers and delamination. It time to reconnect with Bobby Nielson from Eastlake, Ohio who was my navigator and never he let me down..

I know this is an old post but my Dad, Ben Gommel owned and raced Piranha in the late 70s and early 80s. We owned Cuyahoga Boat & Engine in Cleveland and hosted several Glopra races. The boat had 4 Mercury outboard motors. This was the original Boar Hog. My Dad and I were just discussing how the boat would run with 3 of the new Mercury 600s.
