Default Dragon may be available in South Florida

I got a call earlier this week regarding a new Dragon, unrigged may be coming available in South Florida. I'll check on the details on Monday.

Thats funny,,,,,, I was rereading some old POWERBOAT mags and was reading about Eriks boat last night then I see this thread.

It said the boat was completely stripped and rerigged.

The only thing original were the steering helms !!!!!

Teague 900EFI"s in it now,,,,, well as of the redo anyway.

Cant believe he'd sell it after going through all that

aug 06 is the issue in case anyone is curious

I read the same article a few years back. I was a bit shocked about the total rerig considering I was meticulous when rigging this boat. If you look at the pics in the magazine article you will see that the battery switches and breaker panel are still in the same location and that's from memory of three years ago. So I guess not only the helm stayed. But then, I guess Teaque probably never thought that there were pics knocking around from the orinal rig. Boat #2, the white dragon with the notched transom ran 98-99MPH with the same 525 bravo setup. The blue one was not as fast. The other difference was the strake locations.The strakes on a dragon are added after the boat is built, not in the mold and were moved around quite a bit. The first boats all had different strake locations I also rigged the staggered race dragon for Gino. I believe if the bottom of the race boat had the same strake locations as the #2 boat it would have been alot more competitive.

So in your opinion which boat ran the best. Were you ever in hull 1 and I guess this answers some of the strakes falling off questions!

Eric traded it into Eliminator for a brand new 36 Speedster with large motors (believe 1400s) and #6's. I believe Eric wanted more speed (like most of us) and wanted to try a cat and liked Eliminator. His new boat is supposed to run high 170's.

He loooooooved that Dragon and had great things to say about it (after fixing the gremlins). Just moved to something different.

Here's his new boat at the L.A. boat show in 08 (not rigged yet).
