You may have to register w/ HORBA!!!
Yea, But that isn't a bad thing. From what I've read HORBA puts on additional races and events just to showcase the older race boats!!

I'm not saying its a bad thing at all.
HORBA is one cool association.
That is one reason I was interested in this boat.
I'm sure they will also have knowledge to help you w/ your update/restoration.

Think I remember another 28 back then called Tadpole - same paint as the Tadpole 41 Banshee - chased down P-29 Scarab easily ... Congratulations FunHome and Enjoy.
Doug Popma ... Great Lakes Caster .... Think the add was 85 for 85 .... That yella one totally sucked me in !!! Had to have one !!!! Then another .... then .... AHHHH !!! This one ROCKED !!! (was Tadpole originally .... took me three hours to peel those dumb frog stickers off the side !!!
