Well reading this post I saw the yellow outboard version. That hull I have intimate knowledge of.

The 24 BRT mold was junk even before it was or was not cut in half. Mike Becall's last build in that mold ruined it. He was working in a construction company's repair/maintenance facility i.e. dirty and lots of diesel fumes. They had waxed the mold the previous evening and in the morning they wiped the down with rags, some were used with acetone the day before removing splotches of the release wax. Unknowingly built the boat and could not get it out of the mold. So forcing the issue damaged the new hull and delaminated the mold. Sure some one could have fixed it but who know why it got cut in half know Mike.

The 27 signature mold has some good racing history behind it. Two I have seen on the race course with me were Lady L (sank during a tow in to the Merrimack River at the Newburyport Grand Prix.) This boat was blue and white. The other was an all red one called Empty Pockets, this boat separated the hull and deck at a Key West Worlds one year. I believe they recovered the hull only. That hull was at Mike's place last time I saw it.

The yellow BRT in the above post was recored at Mike's under close super vision. The boat was painted here with Awlgrip. Rigged with a Porta bracket and mounted the tabs flat. It was a two seat sit down.

That picture was at a Barneget Bay race. If you look close you can see Mr Technology and Progression race teams.
