Oh sweet! Awesome classic offshore racer! I bet that is a smooth riding hull. Good luck with your new boat.

Rat-
CongRATulations!!!
I think the boat you have was the one raced by Joey Ippolito. In Searace by Mr. John Crouse, refer to pages 279 to 281- the boat is pictured with a caption indicating it started as 'Outrageous' and won the 78 Bushmills Grand Prix with T-man Jack Stuteville and navigator Bill Vogel. Bernie Little saw the boat run and decided to sponsor it. There are 2 teardrop running light just under the rub railabout 5 feet from the bow.

On pages 288-289 the boat is pictured with the beer can fuel tanks....

The Michelob Light boat running #89 or US-1 is the boat Betty Cook ran (for a while with Bill Vogel)- I have that boat and am restoring it. Please call me at 1-985-893-3831- I am usually up until about 12:00 PM Central.
