Nope. The Cafe was a narrower beam boat. the 36 and the others that were mentioned are wider beam.

I see. After doing more research on the other boats mentioned i have learned quite a bit. Anyone with info on Luxury Marine's build processes would be great but probably hard to come by. Does anyone remember them having a race boat in the early 90's?
Thanks

Yes... as the bottom goes... they all came from the 33. The only difference with the 8-6 boat is that midway up the freeboard there is a differential sheer.... it's that undeniable line that runs fore to aft down the side of every 8-6 boat... The result of a skill saw cut that removed the top half of the hull of a 9-4 to make the boat narrower. The bottom half remained the same. Hope this clears things up... clear as mud I'm sure.

Raul's nickname is Booty. I have hundreds of pics and pics of the Chapmans working on the plug.

I'm sorry but what are you talking about? you have pic of chapmans working on the plug for the twister?

Anyway i got a call back from the people at Aqua and they didn't really get me any good information. I really just wanted to talk to the owners but they are making that difficult. The engines are original 502's making 400hp witch is weird since the descritption says 450hp. Drives are bravo's with no info on rebuild time. He said that they were recently painted and re-sealed but i could see that from the pics. Thinking of making an offer (pending survey and sea trial) for the boat less motors and drives. Aqua did say that the owner would consider selling without motors and drives. What to offer?

Considering there are name brand boats (ie better resale) available like this at the same price, I would be sure to buy that boat REALLY right

we all built a version of the same hull, great riding hull but no speed demon.
