For the 40K they want for it, plus the re-paint, plus stripping all that antique stuff in the cockpit, plus a set of 6's and engines...

There are some really nice boats in the classifieds you could pour gas into and use this weekend.

The boat was originally called Lunatic Fringe and built for a gentleman from Hawaii. Had Gentry Turbos on Keikhaefer 6's originally and ran 118 out of the box... Bobby Moore rigged it originally it was fast remember this was back in 90-91 era I was in it @115 before dont remember the guys name for sure I believe it was Joe Francis maybe....anyway ended up in Carmody's stable as Texas T

Hey thanks for the info and any other stuff you can think off.

So was this the one that had the front end cut off and glassed back on that other guys have spoke about.

Anyone have there 2cents on what the boat would be worth with no moter and no drives. and what eles could it be riged with.

Could it not be filled in and put another type of drive on it and a pair of
????????

Very doubtful never heard of that they may be talking about the Cigar boat that was 41 Apache boat that had the nose cut and deck lowered in the front. Why would you seal the transom and put other drives on it
