Question Question: Anyone know this 28 Cherokee Boat?

I'm looking for an OPA Race boat for next summer and stumbled across this one. It's in Florida now but I'm not sure were it original came from (what numbers are CL??) I E-mailed the seller and asked him for the race team name, race number and some other information so I could do a little research but he has not replied This leads me to believe the boat may have been sunk or wrecked racing (maybe) Do anyone of you guys know this boat>?

Rick, I think we raced against it in A-class in '95-'96 and it was then called Adelphia but I can't remember it's name before that. Great rough water boat and fairly fast. Hope that gets you started. Clay

Eric Froberg, the gentleman that built the boat and owned Cherokee Powerboats, used to be on OSO a lot. I'm sure someone here will have his contact info. He's the guy I'd talk to about the boat.

I wonder if that was the old L-10 boat from around the Tampa area? It had twin engines

This boat has been around for a while. Do a search. I think Eric used to race this boat with the owner.

Call Eric Froberg by contacting Eddie Amado at TNT(might be playing soldier still in Iraq) or maybe Ralph at TNT or also try Bobby Saccenti.....that will get you to where you want to get.

I don't remember it ever being wrecked or sank. Eric raced the boat with Fred and Alva Hayes from Miami. Stinson where is my picture?????
