Default Serious Race Boat

I was digging thru some old pics and happened across this. It's my old Velocity 30 race boat. It's a 1980 hull that originally belonged to Jay Smith (past president of the APBA), The fellow I bought it off of renamed it from Putt-Putt to Serious. After a complete, down-to-the-last-bolt restoration, I sold it (just married/new baby) and it sat in storage for almost 20 years. It resurfaced recently not far from me. Thought you might enjoy seeing it

I had a set of Banks turbocharged/intercooled 496's in it with alcohol injection and I ran out of willingness to push further on the throttles at 113. It sold with a set of small blocks in it that ran mid-80's.

This was 20 years ago. 496 was a big-inch motor and 70 was hauling a$$.
