They were from Virginia Beach, & used to come pick him up every weekend in the Spring. I would always ride down to the docks to watch them come roaring down the Rappahannock River. It actually made me REALLY homesick, but it was at least a taste of the fun I was missing back home.

I can't remember the guys name that owned yours, but the family's name was Haycox that had the other Gun, & the kid I knew.

Sorry, just dialing back the memories, great boat!!

I was told by Randy Sweers that the first owner was Mickey Rourke. The boat lived in the High Dry at Sunny Isles untill I bought it in the late 90s. I purchased it from a holding company. There is another one kind of like it in Alabama on the lake that banned powerboats last year. Got any pictures of when you seen it?

I was told the same thing when I took your boat for a ride years ago. The owner at the time was German I believe.

I must take the Credit, it was my pushing that got it done.

I do not need any red. But thanks.

Ramez was the German, owned a Car business in Europe and Miami. said he put about 12 hours on the boat. It was to much work.

(........PPI start pullin staples I'm gettin closer.....) Less than 3 weeks show us some pictures PPI
