I have always heard those 18's were pretty dangerous. Never seen one run though.

I too have heard of blow over issues. Dave, don't forget when this boat was being built, it would have been pretty edgy. Besides, it created the capital to go onto better things!

One of T2x's posts reveal the origin of that design.

Cord,

Yeah...I see what you are saying....had to start somewhere right? And I'm sure it was quite a change from the norm when it was introduced.
