Default Rally Sport / Rallysport boats - info?

Anyone know anything about these aside of they look pretty good? History, build quality, performance, etc... Looking for outboard model info in particular.

Thanks -

Go to Screamandfly.com. You will find a lot more there because it is an outboard only site.

There's a super clean Rally Sport o/b on S&F being offered for sale by Wildman.

I just realized you're already aware of the boat I mentioned above...

I don't think you'll find a cleaner RS!

Thanks everyone - yes, the one that Wildman has is the one I was asking about. Just don't know much about them and thought that would be a fun boat to have for those times you just want to go out and rip it up a little on the lake.

Copiercat - that came out AWESOME! Have you run it yet - curious as to how it goes with that motor...?

I know very little about them other than they were "popped" from one of our 21 footers....(so what else is new?). I do know that most of the "pop" artists tend to cut corners and costs...and our original Challengers and Shadows were very labor intensive, used only top quality materials, and featured custom teak trim, Custom designed one-off Stainless hardware, and custom made tanks...... I have never seen any of this in the clones.

To say that the copies are " great boats" because the originals were....... may be a big mistake IMHO, especially given the fact that they were produced by people who "stole" designs.
