I started out in a 15' Mitchell. I have no pics, but it got destroyed!!!

Then came a 1972 18' Sutphen Grand Sport. Kept it for 14 years and had a ton of fun in it!!! Both kids are now grown

I have a thing for blue boats with Big Block Ford power. The Gladiator is where I will be for the long haul. It is the perfect vehicle for my tastes is layout, handling, speed, and cache.

All rigging done at home. Got a little better with practice.
That is a beautiful boat. I love the simplicity of the paint.

Truth be told, It is almost too much. I personally think a couple of all auminum stroker small blocks would be a better fit. Big Block Fords are the same as a tall deck Chev with Big Chief heads. They are physically big and (with steel crank and rods) heavy and the 32 Fever has an issue with the way it sits in the water at rest or idle. Yup, less weight combined with decent power would be better way.

Maybe my next project??
