Beep Beep....your boat comes from my 38 foot mold...the first boats made were banana boats. I hired JC Simon to design an Open class race boat for me.

I built the 38 and the 34 out of the same mold and sold them as banana boats. JC Simon later used the same mold and built Coyotes .....but the mold was eventually sold to Sonic....they added a swim platform on the back and that is now their 42 footer.

Here are some shots of the first boats out of the mold. I raced teh same 38 footer as Top Banana in 79 and Rums of Puerto Rico in 80.
