Question Where Is Black Max (28 Rabco)???

Does Anybody On The Board Know Where The Famous Rabco 28 Footer Called Black Max Go , I Remember My Dad Sold It In 1980 , And The Boat Went To Seattle And It Was Never Seen Again , I Heard A Rumor That The Boat Was A Trailer Queen , And Is Still In Washington ?
Any Help To Find This Beautiful Old Race Boat Would Be Great ....
Thank You .

ziemer knows outboards. Did you pull that out of a scrap book? Is your Grand Sport the same or similar to a model 2003?

Unfortunately, I know just enough to get me in trouble. Got the pic from S & F. Just trying to help a buddy out.

Yes, my Grand Sport is an XS2003. They make an XB2003 which is basically the same hull, but with a bass boat deck.

In the 90's there was a black rabco w/triple 200 on the chain of lakes in Illinois.
