Those old Scarab 38's were nice running and well handling boats.

Love the KV's...Great classy lines that wont ever date. Awesome running boat. A buddy out here has one with staggared big power and #5's on it. Racing bolster set up, no cabin. It's a MONSTER!! He wrenches on it himself. If you need his number for anything I can get it to you.

If this is Bobby Moores old boat does anyone know what happened to it?? If he sold it It looks like it has been untouched and outside with no cover for the last 10 years.
I recently just out batteries in the boat and fresh fuel in it and the motors fired right up!!! I was amazed I only had them running for a minute or so had no water running through them, but they sound great.

Wouldn't want one any other way.
Funny you mention this. Saw an all white 382 Formula at LOTO this weekend. Made the boat look like a 40' + and really stood out.

Congrats on the new ride, Batty!
