Yes - The bottom and foredeck definitely scream "Ocke". The transom is almost non-existent. That is one cut-down SOB. The Vector seemed to be too tall to compete with the low-profile raceboats.

This is the first SilverHook designed by Ocke & Ted Mannerfelt (Mannerfelt Design Team) with a Mystic canopy/bustle/rudder.
SilverHook GP48 was built in Florida by John Cosker. The engines are Sterling Class 1 engines using SCS gears and BPM drives with a rudder.

The engines ran great and the boat is very fast.
SilverHook was flying beautifully in Malta but during Saturday's race a trim tab motor broke off and during Sunday's race the oil pressure sender came out of the gearbox (along with all of the oil).

The next race is Den Helder, Netherlands the weekend of August 5-7.

SilverHook is very solid and corners are fantastic!
