That Fittapaldi boat was 26 feet long, made by ..... dang, I knew when I started typing this..... uh...... dang, there's a red one around here every summer......might have been Regal....... I know it was't Wellcraft. Anyway, it wasn't nearly as fast as Emo's car!!! And not as good looking either. Kinda tall for a 26 footer. Dang, wish I could remember who built it, I can see the boat in my mind, but can't read the manufacturer's name. Shoot!!!

I don't know Sean. Just doesn't look like a wellcraft to me. Chris Craft maybe, but not a wellcraft. Next time I see it I will be sure to check though. All red boat, with Emo's autograph on the upper gunwhale near the stern on both sides. Looks like it would have a lot of room in it.

Waterfoul,
Maybe I can help you out.
I haven't seen the movie in a while, but I think it was a "Fittapaldi edition Celebrity".

Hey Traviss and Baja342, I thought Alan Jackson had a 60 foot Rybovich named Dixie. Did he trade that down to a Buddy Davis. That would be a trade down.

Are you talking about the boat in the day's of thunder? It's was a 38' Scarab. By the way it looked like it was pretty cold on that boat ride!

As for the weekend at Bernie's I think it was a 23' Glastron, I think?!?
