The RAGE 32 sport is the 32 activator that PETER MEYER and JOE SGRO raced in the 90s. I popped a viper for TOM MASOTA in the early 80s. The fiore family wanted me to build thier boats, so the mold I made for TOM went to FLA. I always assumed that became the 32 SCORPION mold. Any way when someone aproached me with the chance to use a burnt 32 SCORPION for a plug I did. I changed the transom angle, made the strakes wider, and lengthened the keel strakes. The deck was tooled from scratch.The VIPER mold was destroyed in a fire so I was told.

The 32 sport is a good looking boat, do you have any more pictures you can post?

Rage,

What did you do with the plug you made from the burnt Scorpion? Did you pop any boats? I'm a little unclear.

When I finished making the 32 sport mold I put the plug outside. At the time I had a 10,000. sq ft shop in the airport, security and all, someone stole the plug in middle of the night. However we did build 5 or 6. I still have the molds.

I believe that the video of the stuff was a NEW JERSEY race, and they won it.

Man that boat was forsale forever. It had motors, then listed without motors, then had motors again. I think it was forsale for atleast 5 years, maybe more.

It was always in my price range, but I just could never get past that paint job.
