Real nice looking boats, like some said, a resemblance of a Beak Boat (Cintron Fountain) LOL.

I am kinda scratch'in my head why with the drives and bucks in these two boats they would only run small Ilmor power??
I guess they probably got a smok"in deal on the engines or Chaudron had some engine inventory they wanted to move??
Both nice representatives of International boat building skills.

I have those same rails on the Latham trim tabs on my 38 Powerplay. It tracks in the turns like it was on rails. One I've noticed is that it is hard to get the stern of that boat to get that slide feel in hard corners that you feel in a lot of twin step boats. I have know idea if that is caused by the rail on the tabs, my hull design, or a combination of both.
