Awesome!

Thank's Sharkey. I've been waiting to see how the boat would turn out. I hope Rich [or you] will post some more photos of the project.

Here's a before shot.......

that thing really is bizarre looking, but cool as hell, when was that built? 50's or 60's?

Looking great,Rich. When are you going to get it wet? What's up with the new extended cowlings?

Random answers:

That is DarrenUS1's wing, I'm simply the "sponsor"

2 x 350+ hp @ 10,000 RPM

We are aiming for the Clayton, NY Antique Race boat regatta (2 years late) in August 06

The original Wings ran 110-120 in the 60's with less than half the power we have.......and two bladed propellers

We'll be running a pair of Formula one, 4 blade cleavers on SSM 4's.......

Top speed on paper is too ridiculous to post.

Here's a shot of one passing a big block equipped, flatbottom back in the day

That's about it.......

That is very cool. I can't imagine what it will sound like coming on plane, much less at speed, whatever that may be! WOW!!
