The lifelines were in the boat. They matched the paint and I also heard three women raced the boat.

Congrats . Looks smoking . I talked with Jim but didn't buy from him only because I found my Top Gun somewhere else.
But Jim was grat to talk to . Very helpful to me and my wife .
I think we are very lucky to have a couple of great dealerships up here . R and R and Jim Earle . The beauti is they work together on some runs during the season .

Yes. It was owned by Bill Leslie And run out of Huron Pointe Marina. His girlfriend was at the wheel her sister at the throttles and a friend along for the ride. Previous to that Scarab they ran one with a very similar graphics design. That Scarab had blown big blocks built by a company called Innovations, I think. It ran in the 90`s and that thing had a full interior and cabin. It was sold to an Englishmen and his partner who owned a business in Canada. That Scarab ran the poker run circuit for quite some time and may still be out there.
