I saw it two days ago at a slip in Pawtuxet Cove in Cranston, RI. I am not a boater but when the guy fired up the engines it was impressive. Just for the heck of it I Googled the boat's name to see what type of power they have and saw your post. There were 3 guys on it and you could tell they were either working on it or giving it a trial run. Like I said I'm not a boater so all I can tell you is it's still yellow and the name was kind of faded. Looked like it has two dual exhausts.

Hi, I Had the motors gone through completely and serviced a number of items on the 38 Scorpion. The supercharged motors are perfect and soo nice to hear. When I start up those mercury race, " fire breathing motors " at the boat ramp ,it seems like almost everyone has their I-phone on it or the rest just run for cover.
For a classic boat it .amazes me how many people immediately like the look and sound of it. I have had a lot of boats in my time and but this one is different, heightens your senses and lets you know you are alive ....keeps your mortality in check.

I take it out for the occasional intercoastal cruise (well maybe more of a spirited cruise) with the kids and wife. Pull up to intercoastal restaurants and patrons either like the noisy intruder or hate it profusely. The boat is extremely fast and it is a true race boat. It has no stereo, no A/C ,no exhaust restriction and no flimsy bimini top.
It is a total ride on the wild side, just like when race boats were true race boats.

Hey,just my interpretation of a nice afternoon out on the water in Florida ! ..opinions may vary for sure
