I remember a Tolman Group boat from the 1981 Barcardi Race.
It was a great looking boat but I didn't think it was a Bertram orange or red and blue on white.
I have VHS video clips of that race as I had a press pass was on the 50' Cary press boat for that race, (covering it for my highscool video class =P )
The editor did a crappy job so it is barely worth seeing, one second clips of each boat, trolling from Turnberry to the start at Gov Cut. and start and finish footage.

The Toleman boat always stood out in my mind though.

Miami to Nassau ...
Miami to Key West...
Palm Beach around Bimini to Fowey Light....
St Pete to Key West....
Let the racers decide the 5th one.....

Do you think there would be enough interest from a dozen people or so to kick it off?

Biggie would be willing to supply identicle motors and lock the costs down

(I sold Aronow's original "Maltese Magnum" to a person in Federal Way, Washington who is restoring it as the original race-boat. He should have it done in the spring of 06)

The project is still coming along very nice, some delays, but the boat should be completed within the next two years. I'm building this back 100 % original.

Would daddy cool lose anything(value for originality) if you swapped out the crash boxes for trannies? It sure would make the boat more user friendly.

Hey Chatem

Did you find that boat in California in the middle of a bunch of orange trees. I looked at it in 2000 wife would not go for the race boat deal. But loved the style so much bought a 35 pleasure mistress 77 totally redid it great boat.

Every once in a while I get a call to survey an old race boat that a guy wants to buy to turn into a pleasure boat. Unfortunately, most of the transoms and stringers give my moisture meter cardiac arrest.

Beware of the old race boat that was had rain water lying in it for years.
Be prepared for disappointment if the boat has been stored outside for any length of time. Remember many boats built prior to 1992 were made of General Purpose resin, which is great for hot tubs, but bad for old boats.

I thought at first you were asking Charley about a Banana but then realized were not in the banana room.
What part of California was it in?
