I owned an Australian made Scarab with outboards nearly 30 years ago. I had the Miami Vice soundtrack blaring out the stereo at full speed. For a few moments there, I really was Don Johnson!!!

With the big move towards centre consoles nowadays, maybe TV producers can work on a revamped 'Baywatch' too. Nothing wrong with the Scarab cc's and who wouldn't want to look at a 25 year old replacement for Pammy Anderson in a bikini?

One post claims 95 mph. I called him out on that.
