I don't know what they raced, but I thought it was APBA, because there were APBA stickers all over it, and the crests in front of the drivers were the Apba high points championship crests. I was at our OSO gathering saturday and the owner/designer of Redline was there with Viscious One, and sunday I was at Viscious One's shop with Milord and there were some engineering drawings of a 40+ Redline hull from back in the day that never was produced, but it was really cool seeing that there were plans for this boat. It had sweet lines that's for sure! There's a ton of cat history all around this area, Ocean express, Awesome, Redline, and the Viscious boats are all built within 10 minutes of where I live, and Skater is about 1 1/2-2 hour drive away. It's definitely cat territory around here. I've never heard of a redline with inboards, I wonder how many of them were made like that? I know there were not many redline's made in total, just never knew of inboards in one.

There was only one 28' redline built with i/o's Ken Taylor that works for me now built that boat and set the engines in it . We where just talking about that boat, they built a one off custom rear deck for the shoe horn fit of the motors!

This boat went through drastic changes in the few years it raced. It was built by John Peterson from key West. It had twin F-16 canopies on it. Origanally it had some race car guys motors in it which weren't very good in the marine app. Then they switched to UNITED who built great motors. If I remember correctly the rear deck was raised after the first season of racing. At one point they also put beaks on this boat to allow them to beef up the engines for the C class. The boat was first called America's Paradise then Change Order. The boat ran well in calm water very fast for the class but was balanced terribley for rough water. It can be seen on the intro to all the Freeze Frame tapes with the bow to the sky. This was the first paint job I designed while still in high school. Last I heard the bnoat was in Jacksonville Florida. This boat MIGHT run well with 2 or 3 Outboards.

That was it Pat I met him at Wylies shop. He bought and sold lots of boats. Does it still have canopies? How does it run with the 2.5's. If you see him tell him Ryan Beckley said hello.

Crazyhorse,

My gps showed 101 at the Shoot out last year so I guess that makes me a member.

Looks good, Jim. Hope you bring it to Great Lakes Marina this year. I'd like a ride in Muskegon Lake.

Cool

We wanted to add our entry to the 100 mph club. Our 2001 42' Fountain with twin Merc 900SC's runs over 120 mph and that's in Wisonsin!

Take Care everyone,
