Thanks but you have to put the full information....was this a 50 foot Scarab or a 29 foot?

Was the boat raced under the name of Roseville?

Charlie, the ex. George & Jean Werner boat is a straight-V Team Scarab 26. Original name while racing was Kwik-Way.

Default 1979 Team Scarab 9 Meter, Pure Insanity P-38.

https://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/...ml#post2820972

Here's a legendary boat Charlie;
For the 1979 season, Jeff Brown of Hawthorn, CA had Larry Smith make him a new Kevlar49 built 9 Meter "Pure Insanity" P-38 (II) and he become the Overall U.S. Production Class Champion of 1979 . Here's a couple of shots of (II) in action. Pure Insanity (II) was in the mid 80's owned by a Glenn & Roberta Gill of Montclair, CA and raced in the Production Class. The boat has TRS drives and has since the Gill's ownership, for years now, been owned by Lee Porteous of Greater San Francisco and has twin SBC with 6-71 blowers. Lee runs her in the classic Catalina Ski Race in California sometimes. Boat has big power and runs in the 90's any day, all day. Beautiful boat!

#38 Wolverine 29 Mirage was destroyed after an attempt to pull a plug from it failed here in metro detroit in the early 80's. Dick Smith (owner Pete's son) and I made a tribute boat from a different 29 Mirage Pete had purchased to race Sport Class with. Plans changed and he went up to open in a 37 Active cat. The staggered 9Mss was sold as a pleasure boat. we purchased it and did a full resto. It's used regularly on LSC and has been outstanding!!
