Here are a couple of videos of him with the Scarab:

Note the errors like rumbling big block sounds while filming OB's and the whole concept of racing a 50 ft Cary!

The boat was in the classifieds not too long ago. I've seen photos posted here in the last few weeks.

Boat looks cool but very dated. The wood around the windshield looks terrible.

That was pretty cool to see on tv back in the day, being someone who lusted to see them ciggi boats since the 70's ,that was the best footage of boats that have ever been on tv.I love the way Tubbs is looking like he is just loving the bone crushing Don trim up, get that pig to fly a little bit,from the video and the throttle position it looks like there is the last quarter of throttle and another 3 mph left.I hated the way they reversed the film to show them coming home from the Bahamas.Still better than anything else i have seen on the tube.
