"Stryker. Stryker! STRYKER!"

Freeboard looks kinda low for an IMP, but I can't say for sure.

When we sold IMP boats, we sold a 255, 25', with twin 350's in it and it had the arch. Could be one of those or the old 310 Eleganza.

Now that you guys mention it, an IMP Elanganza would be a logical guess. We have a guy here in St.Catharines with a 41 Elaganza and it has the same low profile. The radar arch is very dominant like the won in the photos.

Did anyone notice the grab rail on the arch?

One mor ething to check is the grab rail on the deck. If it's in the centre it might be an older Scarab. (looks like the tarp is held up by a singel grab rail in the middle?) I'm not sure if IMP did the grab rail the same? I know the Stinger 312, 390 and most of the larger boats had a perimeter grab rail.
Any other thoughts guys?




Is also looks like a Canadian Flag hanging from the back???

Causmik,When ya stop and ask him what it is for us,you might fill him in on OSO. Bye the way, there were a few 25' 26' with twins back in the 70's & early 80's with twins.

Not going to have a chance to stop in to chat with him this weekend...going to be at the cottage in Kingston. I'll do it next week...If anyone wants to go themselves for a sunday drive...the boat is parked on a lawn right outside

Mt. Albert Road & 2nd Consession Rd in Sharon...just north of Greenlane in Newmarket...where the 404 ends

Anyone have anything else you want me to ask him for Monday..let me know..I'll tell him about OSO

It may be a Scarab, but I'm 90% sure that's a mid-eighties Chris Craft. If it's not a Stinger, maybe a Scorpion?

And yes, I'd say a 312.

Don't think it's a Stryker or an Imp.

Not a Stinger, way too low freeboard... honestly.. I think it is a Sutphen, it has a center bow rail for sure, I am going to be that boat is older then mid to late 80's.
Not a 30 Scarab either, the part where the wing mounts is flat, like a flatdeck Cig, 30 Scarab is not like that, that is another reason i think it is older then mid to late 80's

maybe Mirage?
whatever it is, it is a flat deck style...I gaurantee it.. Those drives seem to date the boat too, those look like older Merc drives, like a older speedmaster type, i cannot rember what they were called back then, thought OMC for a minute, but I am 99% sure they are merc..
