At one time it must have been a cool raceboat. there are some ...... shall we say..... interesting modifications. Nice wing and "Y" pipes.

I like the statement of the engines "just been redone" .... 150 hours ago.

LOL

Some of us have more than six weeks of summer! I put 235 hours on my center console last year!!

I've seen that boat around the Chesapeake.....it looked just like it does in those pictures.

"has drive boxes so the out drives run in undisturbed water"... Looks like regualr Bravo's to me, But maybe he modified then like he did the rest of the boat. lol

"I'm just getting too old to deal with it anymore" ... it's easy to read between the lines on that statement! lol That's probably why it only has 150 hours on it.... constantly breaking!

Looks like a 32 Tempest. The custom black design on the hull matches the bottom paint.

The boat is the original 32 Miami Scorpion flat deck built by Julio Devirona and Myself in the mid 80's. That deck mold was scrapped and a newer version was constructed .. model name "Elegante'"

The hull was "popped" by Tempest a few years later and another company called Avance.
